Find a park near my location

As soon as the first rays of sunshine of spring expel the cold of last winter months, many people in cities and towns feel like going to a park nearby. You can enjoy all that fresh greenery on one of the many benches scattered around the park but a park is not a real park without one or more lawns where you can relax. Walking through the park in the neighborhood you will see that these green meadows are quickly populated by groups of friends or families with children to enjoy the nice weather. But what is allowed and what is not allowed in the nearest park in your area?

Rules in the park in the neighborhood

Each municipality has its own ordinances and rules. As a result, the rules in parks and public gardens are not set nationwide. So it may happen that at the park near your current location you are allowed to use a barbecue while in the neighboring city it is totally prohibited. On the website of the place where you are, you will find not only the nearest parks but also the applicable local laws that apply to these parks. Dog walking may be restricted in this way or special rules apply to cycling in the local park nearby.

So first check the website of the municipality where you want to visit a park to make sure you are not breaking the rules. If you do think you might break the rules in force, remember that most local parks are now monitored with video cameras.

Where is the nearest park to you?

Do you want to take a break after a heavy business meeting and are looking for a nearby park with easy parking? Or are you looking for a local park where you can walk with your young children to feed the ducks? Whatever your reason for going to the park, you can almost always use a route planner. This will show you the route you need to take on foot, by bike, by car and even by public transport to get there safely and without problems. It also shows facilities such as restaurants and parking lots in and around the park of your choice. This way, you don’t have to spend a long time looking for what you need and can therefore enjoy your time in the park nearby for an extra long time.

Nearby parks and events

In large cities, parks are often used to host concerts or events during the summer months. On such days, the park in your area can be extremely crowded. It may even happen that the park is partially or completely closed. Take this into account when looking for a park nearby. If you don’t like the crowds, choose another park or throw yourself wholeheartedly into the festivities if you can use some cultural distraction.
