In a village which is lake a big beautiful park itself the need for a public park does not arise. The need for a public park is thus a need of the city. The poor and the needy are drawn to the city in the hope of employment. Those who have something to sell or buy are also drawn to the city. There are mills and factories the smoking chimneys of which make the atmosphere cloudy, gloomy and impure. People live in blocks of room closely packed like sheep and goats in the compartment of the goods train. On the highroads are shrieking motor cars lorries and vehicles. The air is thick with smoke and dirt.
There could be a spot which is open on all sides. Which is cool and quiet. Where few noises are hear. Where no chimney smokes which is beautiful with a velvety lawn green trees and fresh flowers. This green spot is the park for the public meant for all without distinction. The rich and the poor alike have free access to it. The master and the servant the rich and the poor mix freely on the same ground and thus the distance between class and class is lessened. A public park is a school of democracy where in everyone learns the elementary lessons of equality and brotherhood.
Parks are also useful for providing playground to children. Any evening one may walk round any public park and see children running walking jumping climbing and playing all sorts of pranks with one another. In parks children mix with children enjoy themselves and improve their health. From the dull atmosphere of the office or of the house the public park gives the officer and servant a cool and a quiet corner. The old find the parks very helpful in spending their evenings.
Some parts may also serve as botanical museums of all kinds of trees and flowers. But the chief use of a park is its open air peace and natural beauty. To a hot and well fertile country like Pakistan the necessity for such public parks is ever greater than it is to other countries. Public parks affords a cool relief from Pakistani's hot oppressive climate and also provide free open space for the poor from their dark and dingy rooms.
But to the poor these public parks are a heaven on earth. The poor worker is seen resting his tired limbs. The poor clerk having worked like a drudge in the office for the whole day is seen strolling with his wife and children. To the poor and the middle class people public parks are a blessing. Therefore it should be the duty of every government and municipality or corporation to provide the public with as many parks as possible. It doing so they would to real service to the public.
