It is given that park is  125\; m long and  65\; m broad

It is clear that it is rectangular shaped with length = 125 \ m \ and \ breadth = 65 \ m

We know that area of rectangle is = length \times breadth

\Rightarrow length \times breadth = 125 \times 65 = 8125 \ m^2                   -(i)

Now, length and breadth of outer rectangle is



Area of outer rectangle is 

\Rightarrow length \times breadth = 131 \times 71 = 9301 \ m^2                              -(ii)

Area of path is (ii) - (i)

\Rightarrow 9301 - 8125 = 1176 \ m^2

Therefore,  area of path is 1176 \ m^2
