What the park is like
And explain why you like visiting it
Sure, there's a garden here in Edinburgh that I really love. Well, actually it's more than a garden, it's like a park, It's called Princes Street Gardens and it's very large. Apparently it was created from an old loch, like a lake, which dried up.
It's been there for hundreds of years now and has a lot of trees, plants, flowers and other interesting things like statues, monuments and fountains and stuff like that.
It's a public garden and every day you can see hundreds of people there - some of them are tourists visiting Edinburgh - and others are just walking through the gardens on their way to someplace, or you can often see people sitting having something to eat or drink at one of the cafes.
Just last week I saw several people sitting on some of the benches reading, now that the weather has turned nice again.
I used to go to the gardens a lot when I first arrived here from abroad. I found it very relaxing - so much greenery - in the middle of the capital city.
Now I try to go every couple of weeks to explore a little and learn a bit more about the gardens. I have some favourite places in the gardens, for example, the Ross Fountain, and there are many other monuments and commemorative sites which honor explorers, reformers, and volunteers and people who died in various wars and for various causes throughout history.
It's almost like walking through a history book sometimes. I would love to have enough time to learn about all of them.
But one of the things I like most is that you can always find a quiet place to be by yourself if you go - or you can go to different parts where there are a lot of people all around - there's a lot of variety and you can see, and sometimes even meet, people from all over the world.
I suppose if you were really interested in flowers and trees and things like that it would be a great place to spend some time too.
Flowers don't really interest me, but it's easy to see that there are a lot of different plants and shrubs throughout the gardens.
Personally, I just like going there because there is always something to do and different people to see, and to see how different the gardens look as the seasons change.
