Parks have been around for thousands of years. The first may have been in the realms of ancient Persian kings, "who dedicated many square miles to the sport of hunting."

As time passed, these natural areas were altered to include paths and shelters, as many parks have today.

Where is your favorite park? State and national parks contain miles and miles of hiking trails. Some parks have theaters, zoos, museums, and restaurants, others just trees, flowers, bushes and benches.

Others have sporting facilities - football and soccer fields, tennis and basketball courts, ice skating rinks, and skate parks. A few have places to boat or fish.

Do you see the skyline in our illustration? It's the famous Central Park in New York City! Like so many others, this park provides a green escape in the midst of a bustling city. It's one of the Big Apple's most famous landmarks, along with the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty.

Did you know? Central Park contains a statue of the sled dog Balto, who starred in a cartoon film by the same name.

Let's go to the park! You can visit the park anytime when you learn to draw this cartoon. Our step-by-step drawing tutorial is here to show you how.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing a Park

How to Draw a Park Step 01

1. Begin by drawing the long, curved horizon line. Then, draw a pair of curved lines to form a trail or path. Notice how they converge in the distance. Finally, use a curved line to enclose the shape of a lake or pond.

2. Outline a tree. Use a series of curved lines to form the cloudlike crown, and a pair of curved lines, connected at the bottom, for the trunk. Draw another tree or shrub at the corner of the picture.

4. Draw a park bench. First, draw two rounded and curved rectangles to form the bench's seat and back. Connect them with pairs of curved lines, and use similar lines for the legs. Draw small ovals on top of the back. Then, draw a lamp post. Start with a curved rectangle at the base, and extend two lines upwards to form a narrow triangle. Draw the inverted teardrop-shaped lamp at the top.

5. Draw another lamp in the distance. It should appear smaller to indicate that it is far away. Again, start with a curved rectangle at the base, and extend two lines upwards to form a narrow triangle. Draw the inverted teardrop-shaped lamp at the top. Draw water lilies on the pond, enclosing round shapes.

7. Draw the treeline on the horizon, using a series of connected curved lines. Then, draw tall skyscrapers visible above the trees. Each building should be a rectangle with one corner replaced by a straight line. This will contribute to the three-dimensional shape.
