Model Answer:
Thank you for choosing this interesting topic for me. I would be more than happy to talk about a place where I used to play as a child. It is something that I am willing to do again and again because it takes me back to some of my best memories.

Now, the place, I want to talk about, was nothing but just a regular playground which was neither too small nor big. It was an open space, so anybody could visit it at any time without any restrictions. There were a number of other open spaces like this in our small town, but what made this “playground” significantly different from the others was that it was fully covered with green grass – grass that felt so soft and fluffy to the touch. Besides, this open space didn’t have very many residences close to it, meaning we didn’t really have to worry about annoying the neighbours with excessive noises when playing any kind of sports or just running and shouting.

By the way, talking about sports, we mostly used to play either soccer or hockey with my friends and other neighbourhood kids, depending on our moods, and the type of ongoing, international sports tournaments. But, no matter what types of sports we were playing there, we always made sure that we were going back to our respective homes before sunset. After all, this place was located on the outskirt of our hometown, a bit far away from most of our homes, and it would get awfully quiet and dark (because of a limited number of residences and plenty of trees nearby, with no lights or electricity) after the sunset.

Now, coming to how I really feel about this place at this point of my life, after 15 plus years, I think that it is more than just a place or playground to me because this is where I enjoyed lots of special moments with my friends. I also wish that we were a bit gentler to those beautiful green grass during those happy childhood years to protect mother nature in our own neighbourhood.
