CELPIP Writing Sample Test Task 2: Responding to Survey Questions

Read the following information.

You live in a small town of 10,000 people. A large green area in the centre of town is undeveloped. The city has sent out an opinion survey to see what residents would like to have built-in that area.

City Development Survey :

Option A: Shopping Complex: This shopping mall would include restaurants, a large supermarket, and a movie theatre.
Option B: Recreational Park: This park would include a sports complex, a large green area, and a small petting zoo.

Nowadays, People struggle to find fresh air around they live and it's affecting every citizen living in towns and cities. Given this fact, I would prefer a recreational park built for multiple reasons, losing greenery is a major problem all around the world due to the ever-increasing population which is triggering many towns and cities expansions. This makes people living in towns and cities more prone to many respiratory diseases. Building a recreational park will retain and also improve the existing green corridor in the town, and adding a sports complex will be added feature and will promote good healthy activities in the form of sports. Many working people living in towns need a break from there busy work schedules, Having a sports complex will give them a chance to learn and practice sports. Additionally, Petting Zoo will definitely add value to park, Firstly, it will improve revenue to the city with zoo visitors and secondly will help kids to see a variety of animal habitats in there natural living. This will help future generations to understand the benefits of keeping natural green areas in and around cities. In conclusion, Having parks with sports complexes will improve people's standards of living and promote good health, so, Recreational park is the preferred option in my option.
