    problem of misuse

    I would like to draw your attention to the problem of misuse of park in our locality.

    Please tell me if adding the word problem in the above sentence makes it sound weird or it is ok.

    It's OK, but you need 'the' before 'park'.

    Re: problem of misuse

    We don't use the word "locality" anywhere near as often as learners seem to think we do.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
