When looking for a home to invest in, it’s important to find a place that is in close proximity to where you work. But it is just as crucial to be close to a place where you can relax and spend quality time with your loved ones. Parks and gardens are perfect spots for this. Fortunately, here in the city, there are many gorgeous parks you can consider that are not only near business districts but also to great residential areas. Here are just some of them.

Aside from having a lovely outdoor setting, Capitol Commons Park is also close to many restaurants and stores. You can bring your pets here as well, and catch up on your exercise with some jogging.
