Could be a common or a park, depending.  Not usually a square, though.
Not with grass.  I'm not entirely sure why, but that's how it seems to be.

I have concluded that we have very few squares in the US,

I can think of one US city square which has "square" in the name
(not square shaped, though) that is rather well-known.  If you
can't think of it the ball will drop eventually, at midnight on Dec 31st.
