Parks are spaces reserved for leisure amid the hustle and bustle of metropolitan life. While they differ in size and design, parks can be found in the cities of many cultures across the galaxy. Most parks feature diverse flora, artfully arranged for its beauty or fragrance, interspersed with benches, ponds, or walking paths. Some feature gardens reminiscent of specific regions or planets, while others are little more than untamed forest or grassland preserved from development. Often times, parks are dedicated to the honor or memory of leaders, scholars, or important historical events. As such, they are well-regarded and respected by those who frequent them. However, the concealment afforded by landscaped grounds can also attract the shadier elements of a city's population, who seek the privacy of the gardens to gamble, conduct illegal trade, engage in drug-induced revelry, or even to lay in ambush and attempt to rob visitors who are not on their guard.
