A park is a place where I used to go and play with my neighborhood friends. I don’t go there anymore because I’m too old for it. I made a lot of friends but know have lost contact. I used to play soccer, tag and sometimes basketball. We used to stay until 8:00 pm playing tag in the dark. I’m surprised my parents never yelled at me for coming home late but I guess they didn’t care as it was better than playing video games all day. It wasn’t only a place to make friends because I did have people I didn’t really like, but it was a place to get out of the house and take my mind off of school and be a kid. It was a place I went to spend my summer time and not spend it inside with AC and video games.
