    In park / At park

    Hi,

    Would you please tell me the difference between "in park" and "at park"?

    Which one is more used?
    Which is British and which is American?
    Would you please tell me that in what circumstances "at park" is correct and where "in park"?

    Thanks so much.

    If you are asking about an area with grass and trees, neither is correct (except as part of a phrase). Both need an article. If you are referring to a gear in an automobile, "in park" is correct. I assume the same is true in BrE.

    Re: In park / At park

    What if I ask about an area with grass and trees?

    I mean "in the park" and "at the park"

    OK. Now it's my turn. What do you think the difference is?

    I also want you to come up with five different areas for in/an.

    1. work
    2. shopping
    3. eating
    4. drinking
    5. entertainment

    You make up sentences for these locations with at/in and explain the difference.
