In practise, nobody (well, maybe except winos) goes on them. They are
not at all the same thing, and are not used for the same purposes. They
have signs saying No Ball Games to deter kids playing on them, etc

I can't speak for other people, but for me the problem lies more in
the fact that I don't see the point in distinguishing between those
and a park. Presumably they're going to be rendered the same colour as
a park and they are used for the same purposes as a park, why not call
it a park.
If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, just call it a duck.

There are plenty of green areas around here also, but it wouldn't
occur to me to give it a different tag to the parks in the area. It's
grassy, you can walk on it. No practical difference, so why tag it
Have a nice day,
