Only did you realise there’s more to it than taking a jog or reading the newspaper?
Thanks to Bollywood, we’ve learned it’s many recreational and romantic possibilities.
Bollywood shows you 20 ways to use a park!
Go picnicking with hot date and hotter nanny. ;-)

Sit under a tree and wait for an apple, or perhaps a pear for novelty, to fall and come up with a brand new breakthrough like Sir Isaac Newton.
Channel your inner Sherlock and look for corpses that lead into high profile murder mysteries.
Walk unescorted wearing kilos of gold and diamonds and not a soul will come forth to rob you.
But, hey, beware of nattily dressed purse-snatchers.

Play a little game of Alice in Wonderland. Rabbit holes come in the form of a stammering psycho.

Catch up on your beauty sleep. Few things can match the joy of snoring on the partner’s lap surrounded by colourful, fragrant flowers.

Right, Ms Pradha?
Reinvent kung fu with your trainer cum masseur.

Throw an open-air costume party, Halloween or not.
Grab a clandestine spot in the park and engage in a little PDA.
Not the coy type? Then, of course, khullam khulla pyaar karenge hum dono.

Arrange a meeting with former flame’s current wife (if applicable) and tell her you buzz off without making a scene.
And jog, of course.
