  • what it is like

and explain why you think it is a good place to relax.

Sample Answer:
Thank you for this nice topic and the time you allowed me to talk about a place which is good to relax. Without any doubt, most of the people would consider their home for the ideal place to relax. I would also agree with them but this cue card topic specifically  instructs to pick a different place than my home. Well, a park which is located near my home, in my opinion, is also a very good place to relax.

The park I am talking about is called (...give a park's name which is located near your home...) and it takes only 15 minutes for me to reach there from my home. This is a beautiful park and I feel quite relaxed there. Every time I go there, I feel a different kind of peace that the busy city, where I live in, rarely offers. The scenic beauty, the large lake, places for picnic, boat rides, green vista, harmonic songs of nature, the chirping of the birds, sweet aroma of  different flowers make it a paradise. Interestingly this place is preferred by many young artists and it is quite common to spot an artist busy in his work inside this park.

Usually, I go there to walk or to get away from the crowd. It is also a good place to read books or newspapers. I often take a book and read under one of the large trees. When I go there with my friends, I mostly prefer to sit beside the lake and gossip with them. The total area of the park is more than 100 acres and it is maintained by the Metropolitan Park Authority.

The busy city has very fewer places like this one. Once inside, I can forget the busy schedule, think clearly, concentrate on revising my plans, breathe fresh air, sit in a silent corner of the park and can read books or a magazine without any interruption. It might sound a bit awkward but I one spelt there under a tree. I was quite stressed out and tired after a long and busy day. On my way home, I went to this park and sat under a tree. After a while, I fall asleep. I have never told about this anyone. Probably you are the first person I am telling this and to explain how good a place this is!

The beautiful trees, sweet gentle breeze, symphonious ripples on the lake and various beautiful birds make it an ideal place to remain close to nature, think about ourselves without any disturbance, relax our mind and get away from the monotonous city life. I know this park for a long time and I have been there for countless times. This is an excellent place where I can relax and I believe I will go there many more times as long as I live in this city.
