three towns are located such that they are equal distant to the center of a park. What is longer, walking from one city to the other two or walking to the park and back?
note: by taking straight paths

Spoiler for questionsCouple of questions here. If the towns are all an equal distance from the park, and we're assuming this as the crow flies, where are the towns in relation to one another? If they all happen to be less than 1/3 of the diameter from each other, then the distance is going to be less than going to the park and back. But if they are also spread out more than 1/3 of the diameter of the circle from one another on average, then it would be quicker to walk to the center and back. Also, are we assuming optimal routes, if it's just strictly to each of the other towns, and not round trip?
Thank you for the question.
I meant to state that each town is equal distant to the park and equidistant to each other but the towns may not be the same distance to the park as they are to each other. The trip to the towns is one way A to B to C while going to the park is there and back.
