Park

PARK (פַּרְדֵּס, H7236; from Pers. pairidaēza, enclosure; LXX παράδεισος, G4137). Alternately: FOREST (Neh 2:8); ORCHARD Song of Solomon. An enclosed wooded area of land. The LXX uses the Garden of Eden.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

"I made me gardens and parks," the King James Version "orchards" (Ec 2:5); "Asaph the keeper of the king’s forest," the Revised Version margin "park" (Ne 2:8). The same word occurs in So 4:13, "Thy shoots are an orchard (the Revised Version margin "paradise") of pomegranates." according to Liddell and Scott, paradeisos occurs first in Xenophon, who always uses it of the parks of Persian kings and noblemen. Like many other quadriliterals the word is undoubtedly of eastern origin. It seems to connote an enclosure. It is used in Septuagint of the Garden of Eden. Compare Lu 23:43; 2Co 12:4; Re 2:7.
