    Hi there,

    Please proofread the following sentences.

    The park is very quiet at night so walking alone in the park is very dangerous.

    thanks

    Re: place

    the sentence is grammatically correct.
    However, you might consider '...park can be very dangerous' or '...park could be very dangerous'.

    Re: place

    I agree with David. From a stylistic viewpoint, I would try to avoid the repetition of 'park', however.

    As an example:

    The park is very quiet at night so walking there alone can be very dangerous.
