I wanted to look around the whole park which was surrounded with forest and spend quality time enjoying the view slowly, relaxedly.

This is what I want to say but sounds too tedious(?), boring and lengthy. Is there some kind of proper adverb to express something like relaxedly, slowly, carelessly?


The verb that comes to mind that describes this action is wander, which means to go about from place to place usually without a plan or definite purpose, and can be used to describe a situation where one walks around slowly in a relaxed way or without any clear purpose or direction.

For example:

We spent the morning wandering around the old part of the city.

Another possibility is stroll, which, in a similar fashion to wander, means to walk in a slow, relaxed manner, especially for pleasure.

I strolled around the old part of the city.

I went for a stroll in the park.

If you wish to expand upon stroll, and reenforce the point that your walk in the park is done in a relaxed way, without hurrying, then leisurely can be used as an adverb in this case, and indeed, is often used in conjunction with stroll to describe a relaxed and unhurried walk somewhere.

I took a leisurely stroll in the park this morning.
