  • Hi, Bob the Canadian here.

  • I thought today would be a great day to come to the park.

  • And I'm at a park that has everything that I would want to have at a park to be able

  • to do a video where I can help you learn English.

  • So let's walk around and I will show you a whole bunch of things that, that a park,

  • that a city park would have.

  • Often at a park you will find a playground.

  • A place for kids to come and play.

  • There will usually be a playground area like this, and usually there will be swings.

  • I should go try one of these swings right now, what do you think, let me just aim the

  • camera a little closer and let me run over and, and let me see how this goes.

  • I think I'm getting too old for that.

  • Let's, let's move on to the next part of the park.

  • One thing that I really like at a park is if people keep it clean.

  • It's really nice if people pick up their garbage and put it into a proper garbage can.

  • This particular park has a really nice path where if you wanted to go for a walk, or if

  • you wanted to go for bike ride, or if you just wanted to go for a run.

  • It's nice when a park has paths.

  • This particular park also, I'm not sure if you can see them in the distance let's

  • turn for a sec, actually has light poles way over there.

  • You can even come here at night if you needed to go for a run and you could do it safely.

  • Often times at a park you'll also find outdoor covered areas.

  • This particular covered area we would call a gazebo in English.

  • It's just really nice if it's a really hot sunny day or if it's a rainy day you

  • can still come to the park and sit in the gazebo.

  • You can bring a book, there's some benches where you can sit.

  • This is what we would call a pavilion.

  • Sometimes in the summer you can rent a pavilion at the local park, and you can have a family reunion

  • in the pavilion.

  • A family reunion is when you just get together with all of your family, and all of your extended

  • family, just to see how everyone's doing and what they've been up to.

  • Sometimes at the park the landscaping is even more extensive.

  • We're going to walk to the top of this in a minute.

  • I think this is here and it's up on a hill so that you can watch ships go by.

  • I don't think there's a ship going by today in the canal.

  • I was really hoping there would be, but we'll walk to the top and we'll see what we can

  • see.

  • So I'm not sure how well you can see this, but behind me is the actual Welland Canal.

  • When I was a kid every once in a while we would come to the canal and we would wave

  • at all the sailors on the boats.

  • And it would be people from all different countries.

  • People from some of your countries that would be on huge ships.

  • They would come through the Welland, they would come through the Welland Canal on their

  • way out to Lake Ontario, and the eventually making their way down the St. Lawrence River

  • to the Atlantic Ocean.

  • But today, there's no boats.

  • Sorry.

  • I was really hoping there would be a boat.

  • One of my favourite things at the park is really big trees.

  • I just love trees that have lots of shade.

  • Normally if I do go to the park in the summer I end up sitting under a tree like this one.

  • I'm not a big fan of really warm days and lots of sunshine.

  • There's , so, parks are cool because there's big trees and there's usually lots of grass

  • and just lots of green, so you feel really close to nature.

  • If you're lucky, the park you're at will have what we call a skate park.

  • A skate park is a place where you can bring your skateboard, your roller blades.

  • This is for much younger people.

  • I, Bob the Canadian does not come to the skate park, but you can come to the skate park,

  • usually there's a bunch of people here.

  • Today it's kind of empty, but anyways, one of the things you might find at a park is

  • a skate park.

  • Somebody forgot their helmet at the park.

  • I think I'll just leave it here and while I'm making the video maybe they'll come

  • and pick it up.

  • It's really nice if a park has restrooms, or bathrooms, or in Canada we call them washrooms.

  • But sometimes you just need to go to the bathroom, you need to use the restroom and it's nice

  • if a park actually has that.

  • Some smaller parks don't, but usually a larger park like this park will have a restroom

  • where maybe you're here with your family and your little kids, it's nice to come

  • to a park where you can just take them to the bathroom.

  • Well, hey, that was super fun to be able to show you what a park looks like in Canada.

  • I'm sure in your cities you have parks.

  • They probably have even more flowers, if you're in a warmer place.

  • But it was super fun to be able to show you the park and all of the different areas here.

  • I'm Bob the Canadian.
