Today we’ll talk about the IELTS topic public facilities, which comes up in Speaking and Writing.

Questions about town facilities would seem easy to a native speaker, or the examiner.

However, the public facilities that come to our minds may not necessarily be ubiquitous in all cities and towns, though.

Furthermore, what are town facilities?

Firstly, they’re not restaurants. Many candidates take the word ‘facilities‘ in the wrong way.

Examples of public facilities and their benefits include:

  • parks and gardens– These natural areas help you escape from the urban jungle. Lindsay mentions new little public gardens set up in deserted alleyways and lots in Brooklyn.
    • benefits– Research proves that spending time in nature provides peace of mind while living in an intense city environment.
