American Sign Language: "park"
The right sign for "park" depends on what you mean.
If you mean "park" as in "park a car":
See: PARKING- LOT
See: PARKING PERMIT
If you mean "park" as in "a place of recreation" then you should fingerspell P-A-R-K:
If you are talking about an area of land that has trees then you can use the sign "FOREST" which is a pluralized version of TREE.
FOREST = PARK-(version)
If you mean "park" as in an "amusement park" then you could sign ENJOY and spell P-A-R-K, but really in the Deaf World we rarely use the phrase "amusement park." Instead we just tend to refer to a few specific parks to establish that we are talking about "that" type of park. I've seen some of my friends sign ROLLERCOASTER P-A-R-K.
