To help us focus on what type of “green” I’m (and others) are thinking of, I have prepared a photo-collage:
At the core of all this we we see:
- areas of any size but more often small
- a variety of grass, plants, flowers and trees in any number and combination
- located mostly inside urban areas
- there is not normally an entrance to the area but sometime a footpath divides it
Tagging this with leisure=garden covers all situations quiet well, save for the “entrance” part.
One other idea was to add the operator=* tag. E.g. operator=municipality.
One of the other possibilities (proposed in the Dutch Forum) to tackle this problem, is to redifine village_green to mean something different in The Netherlands then in the UK. Such local meaning of tags we also see for highway tagging.
