The word ‘park’ is a broad term that generally refers to large areas of land that feature grass, trees and other landscape elements, arranged so that people can walk in or play in them. Unlike commons, they are generally enclosed by fences or other boundaries, and may be closed during hours of darkness.
Other types of park include national parks and pocket parks. The word park in a wider sense might also refer to large areas of a particular single use, such as a business park, retail park, industrial business park and so on.
