I think any use of common for such a feature fails to understand the
historical and political context of commons (one still referenced by the
Creative Commons licenses).
"Common" was about ownership rather than about being a type of landuse.
Incidentally, most "public" parks actually have permissive access, not
public access. I'm not sure if a real common would have public access,
or whether it would be restricted to the local community. (Creative
Commons generalisation to intellectual property assumes public access.)
