It depends on what kind of parks you mean.
City parks? Play with the dog, play catch, check out the girls, check out the boys, have a picnic with friends and family, feed the ducks, go to the zoo,
National parks? All of the above plus camping, fishing, possibly hunting, drinking, smoking (when and where permitted…), ...

Welcome to Fluther @onionfox!

I’m with @kritiper on this. It depends on the park. We take our dog to the local park for walks while we check out the nature around us and talk. I used to (in my youth) throw frisbees or footballs, hang with friends, have picnics, etc. I have been to national parks and what is done varies by park. Generally camping and hiking, though there might be other activities to do.

Well I’m on Park Committee and what we found is that people love basketball, kite flying, concerts/ live music, bbq-ing, frisbee, baseball and yes, lots of exercise/ walking/dogs. Kids love the spray park and jungle gyms most.

I live across the road from a park. It is a large wildlife management area. People go there to bird watch, fish, study wildlife, hunt: deer, turkey, ducks, geese, rabbits….
Scout troops have overnight campouts and learn about the sky and stars.

There are no services so anything you bring in must be carried out.

I find the biggest users during the day are people out walking their dogs. At night teenagers go there to practice mating techniques in the darkness.

I heard somewhere that 6.279% of all the residents in this town were conceived in that park!
But there is some uncertainty in that statistic.

Now that it is a State park it is open 24/7 for legal activities with no services (no lights) provided.
It would be a great place to picnic under the stars – if it were not for the coyotes and other scary predators that cruise the area at night. People tend to stay in or very close to their cars at night.

I just thought of another popular activity. It is a great place to practice flying drones and ultralight aircraft.

Parks are good places to be among people and outdoors at the same time, without having to actually interact with people or buy anything.
