Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary
mid-13c., "enclosed preserve for beasts of the chase," from Old French parc "enclosed wood or heath land used as a game preserve" (12c.), probably ultimately from West Germanic *parruk "enclosed tract of land" (cognates: Old English pearruc, root of paddock (n.2), Old High German pfarrih "fencing about, enclosure," German pferch "fold for sheep," Dutch park).\n
\nInternal evidence suggests the West Germanic word is pre-4c. and originally meant the fencing, not the place enclosed. Found also in Medieval Latin as parricus "enclosure, park" (8c.), which likely is the direct source of the Old French word, as well as Italian parco, Spanish parque, etc. Some claim the Medieval Latin word as the source of the West Germanic, but the reverse seems more likely. Some later senses in English represent later borrowings from French. OED discounts notion of a Celtic origin. Welsh parc, Gaelic pairc are from English.\n
\nMeaning "enclosed lot in or near a town, for public recreation" is first attested 1660s, originally in reference to London; the sense evolution is via royal parks in the original, hunting sense being overrun by the growth of London and being opened to the public. Applied to sporting fields in American English from 1867.\n
\nNew York's Park Avenue as an adjective meaning "luxurious and fashionable" (1956) was preceded in the same sense by London's Park Lane (1880). As a surname, Parker "keeper of a park" is attested in English from mid-12c. As a vehicle transmission gear, park (n.) is attested from 1949.
n. 1 An area of land set aside for environment preservation and/or informal recreation. 2 # A tract of ground kept in its natural state, about or adjacent to a residence, as for the preservation of game, for walking, riding, or the like. 3 # A piece of ground, in or near a city or town, enclosed and kept for ornament and recreation vb. 1 (context transitive English) To bring (something such as a vehicle) to a halt or store in a specified place. 2 (context transitive informal English) To defer (a matter) until a later date. 3 (context transitive English) To bring together in a park, or compact body. 4 (context transitive English) To enclose in a park, or as in a park. 5 (context transitive baseball English) To hit a home run, to hit the ball out of the park. 6 (context intransitive slang English) To engage in romantic or sexual activities inside a nonmoving vehicle. 7 (context transitive informal sometimes reflexive English) To sit, recline, or put, especially in a manner suggesting an intent to remain for some time. 8 (context transitive finance English) To invest money temporarily in an investment instrument considered to relatively free of risk, especially while awaiting other opportunities. 9 (context Internet English) To register a domain name, but make no use of it (See http://en.wikipedi

A park is an area of natural, semi-natural, or planted space set aside for human enjoyment and recreation or for the protection of wildlife or natural habitats. It may consist of grassy areas, rocks, soil, and trees, but may also contain buildings and other artifacts such as monuments, fountains or playground structures. In North America, many parks have fields for playing sports such as soccer, baseball and football, and paved areas for games such as basketball. Many parks have trails for walking, biking and other activities. Some parks are built adjacent to bodies of water or watercourses, and these parks may comprise a beach or boat dock area. Often, the smallest parks are in urban areas, where a park may take up only a city block or less. Urban parks often have benches for sitting and they may contain picnic tables and barbecue grills. Parks have differing rules regarding whether dogs can be brought into the park: some parks prohibit dogs; some parks allow them with restrictions (e.g., use of a leash); and some parks, which may be called " dog parks," permit dogs to run off-leash.
The largest parks can be vast natural areas of hundreds of thousands of square kilometres (thousands of square miles), with abundant wildlife and natural features such as mountains and rivers. In many large parks, camping in tents is allowed with a permit. Many natural parks are protected by law, and users may have to follow restrictions (e.g., rules against open fires or bringing in glass bottles). Large national and sub-national parks are typically overseen by a park ranger or a park warden. Large parks may have areas for canoeing and hiking in the warmer months and, in some northern hemisphere countries, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in colder months.
Park is the third most frequent Korean surname, traditionally traced back to King Hyeokgeose Park and theoretically inclusive of all of his descendants. In Chinese characters ( Hanja), it is written as , which is the simplified version of 樸 (pu). The name "Park" is usually assumed to come from the Korean noun bak (박), which means " bottle gourd". In Standard Chinese, it is read as piáo or pú. In Korean, it is read as 'pak'.
Park is the sixth album from The Mad Capsule Markets. Sometime in 1996, PARK was their first album to be released in the United States, with two mellower bonus tracks (the same bonus tracks as on the original limited Japanese pressing), but there was little interest. The album shows the band start to incorporate rap metal influences, an element that would become crucial in their later style. The melodious elements from Mix-ism are still prominent in several tracks. The album is often considered to be one of the band's best works. Hide praised the album as a perfect example of state of the art Japanese Rock.
