recently was dropped  the leisure=common rendering from openstreetmap-
carto as it is "misused" by mappers. A suggested replacements are: *leisure=
park, landuse=grass and/or landuse=farmland*. But there are many places
around, that are not official park and not grass as there are some trees as
well. Typically a small areas in the city between apartment buildings. These
areas are not official parks, gardens or grass. It is just a green
accessible for everoyne. So we can say it is a *public* or *common* green.
So question is, how to tag it? There is also tag landuse=village_green ,
but I don't like the word "village" there and as well, there are plans to
remove it, because it has the same issue as leisure=common.
On landuse=village_green wiki, there is a nice sentence: *Such use of the
tag is incorrect, and a better tagging for these situations needs to be
So is the right time to do it now? What tag/tags we should use for such
pieces of green that are too small or to be a park, are not a garden and are
What about e.g.: landuse=public_green? It could be also extended by tags
like trees=yes, scrub=yes or public_green=grass / public_green=flowers.
What do you think? Some better idea?
