    Hello,

    Could you tell me please if these corrections are right?


    My friends live in a small town. It's a new town. The/- streets in the/- town are broad and straight.
    There are the/- beautiful buildings in them. The town is very green, and so the/- air is fresh. There are the/- beautiful parks and gardens in the town. The/- people like to go there after work. In the evening you can hear the sounds of the/- music from the/- parks. There are schools, libraries, a hospital,a theatre, cinemas, policlinics and kindergartens in the town.(Is it true that 'the' shoudn't be used before the word 'town'?) (Can 'the' be omitted before some of those words in plural?)
