Overview


Town Square Park is widely regarded as the 'centerpiece' of SW City, located in its historical and geographical heart; it is registered with the Circle of Fire Corporation as SW City's own 'ground zero', the main point of entry for the COF's teleporting customers.

As a result, the Park is flooded with tourists and the SW City Department of Tourism has placed several tourist consultants throughout the area in order to assist those who may be unfamiliar with their surroundings.

A great number of services are available in and around the park including the SW City Real Estate office (for those wishing to acquire land), SW City Interactive Headquarters, the Teleport Circle and numerous other essential features. Due to its convenient location, Town Square Park is quite easy to get to if you are in nearly every other part of SW City; Grand Central Station is just a stone's throw away and there will soon be a Light Rail service connecting Town Square Park with Grand Central and SW City Hall.

Jetliners from the SW City International Airport can be seen flying a common flight-route over Town Square Park every so often.

Geography


Town Square Park is in the central portion of SW City, surrounded by metropolitan sprawl on all sides. It also sits directly on top of the precinct border that separates Central SW City and Syntax Estates. Filled with trees (Kithicor Pine, SWian Redwood), shrubs (Halo Bush) and several species of local wildlife, Town Square Park is refreshing change from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the area, and is a popular spot for locals to relax and soak in the view.

Only one asphalt street runs through Town Square Park and that is Main Street; the rest of the "streets" are stone pathways.


Town Square Park Clock Tower

History


Town Square Park was once the location of the Imperial Palace of Scarabia, a massive testament to the excesses of the Scarabian Empire. It was the traditional home of the various Emperors, and before that, the Red Kings of the kingdom of Scarabia. The Imperial Palace was truly a sight to behold; a mini-city in its own right. Truly its most beautiful feature was the Town Square Park Clock Tower built to honor the first Emperor, Alexander Comitus. However, in 1885, there was a massive uprising within the populace, who wished for a democratic system where their rights were paramount and where there was no aristocracy to rule over them with an iron fist. In this revolt, the Palace was breached, Emperor Kila Comitus? was executed and most of the building was burned to the ground.

Wishing to preserve at least one relic from the past regime, the Clock Tower was spared and a large park complete with an artificial lake was built around it but was since largely forgotten. However in 1999, the Mayor of SW City at that time () registered the site with the Circle of Fire Corporation and it became the national landmark that it is today.
