    I go to /a/the/-/ park

    1. I go to park.
    2. I go to the park.
    3. I go to a park.

    Hi,
    I don't have much context. I just want to know which one is correct.
    Do they work?

    Suppose that I am a teacher and my student asks me to make him an example with the usage of word "Park"

    Thank you.

    The first is incorrect.
    Do they both work?
    Do they all work? Do all three work?

    Your examples would not help the student much with the meaning of the word 'park'.

    As 5jj said, 1 is incorrect.

    2 and 3 need something more:

    'I go to the park every day'.

    'Sometimes I go to a park on the other side of the city'.
