A Modal answer with band 7+

Well, there are few projects ongoing in the public area of my neighbourhood. I'd like to talk about one of them which is just a mile away from my house. It's a park especially for children, currently, there are no any parks for kids to play around; however, there is a football ground, but it's meant for an adult and no children are allowed for safety purpose. Thus, the municipal corporation has decided to build the kids park on request from the local dwellers.

I vividly remember that it was the Independence Day of my country, Malaysia, when the announcement of the new park was made by the authority. They had also added that this new park would be equipped with many amenities, such as a restroom, picnic area, bikeway, mini zoo, etc. You know, how much time they took to complete their promise, in a year they managed to complete the construction of the park with an installation of the all the equipment.

Next month there is an inauguration of the park. I'm sure that all the children in my neighbourhood will take the benefits of this park. It will contribute to the development of children's physical fitness as well as they would be pleased with such an awesome park.

Overall, I can say that this is the recent development in my area which encourages me to motivate the children who are not cognizant of the newly built park.
