Model Answer 1:

I don’t really think I would have ever gone to a children’s park if it was not for one of my little cousins. Yes, my little cousin just loved going to a children park except, of course, his parents were too busy to take him there most of the time. So, when I visited him last year because I was on a vacation, he didn’t want to waste the opportunity to drag me to a children’s park.

As I have already mentioned, I never really visited a children’s park before so I just didn’t know what I was expecting in a children’s park except that there were some activities to entertain the children. Of course, I tried to tell that to my little cousin but he was too much optimistic of a character as he was certain that I would also enjoy the children’s park, I was visiting, just like him.

And, he was right to some extent because I was indeed happy to see him enjoying his time while he was riding the merry go round, roller coasters, Ferris wheels, swing boats and other things. However, I noticed that out of all those rides, my little cousin enjoyed the ride on the land train the most. Anyway, seeing my cousin so delighted, it was worth capturing the rare moments of fun, so I took my smartphone out and took some of his pictures while in action.

Oh, by the way, I also had to buy my little, 8 years old cousin some snacks and ice creams to provide him with the much-needed energy to carry on with his fun activities.

Anyway, I went to visit the park, primarily because I didn’t want to see my little, innocent cousin sad. After all, he didn’t like anything else as much as visiting a children’s park, and I just didn’t want to be the one to spoil that fun. Besides, I also wanted to get some first-hand experience of visiting a children’s park myself since I had nothing better to do at that time.


Sample Answer 2:

Last month I visited a children’s park in our area with my 8 year's old nephew. He was getting bored at home and his mother requested me to take him outside and I took him to the nearby children’s park. It was in the evening and there were lots of other children who came there with their parents. I found that my nephew Smith was very happy to be in this park and he enjoyed the activities offered there for children. He rode on many rides and ran for a long until he got tired.

I went there after a very long time and enjoyed the children’s activity as they were playing, shouting and joyfully running in the park. There were many trees and flowers in this park and I was mostly watching my nephew or the other children.

At a time I found that John had already made two/ three playmates and they all came to me and asked me to take a picture. I took a few photos of those angelic kids and bought them some nuts and ice-creams. When the darkness started falling around us, I asked my nephew to get back home and we started walking towards home. Both of us enjoyed our sudden visit to that children’s park though one of us one not a child at all!
