Band 9.0 Sample Answer.
One park that I visited and liked was Central Park in New York City. I visited Central Park during the summer, on a warm and sunny day.
I liked Central Park for a few reasons. First, the park is huge and has a lot of different areas to explore, including lawns, gardens, fountains, and even a lake. There is always something new to see or do, and it is a great place to spend a few hours or even an entire day.
Second, Central Park is also a great place to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city. Despite being located in the heart of Manhattan, the park feels peaceful and serene, and it is a great place to take a break from the noise and chaos of the city.
Finally, I also liked Central Park because of its rich history and cultural significance. The park has been featured in many movies and TV shows, and it is an iconic and well-known place that attracts visitors from all over the world. Overall, I enjoyed my visit to Central Park and would definitely recommend it to others.
