OS Open Greenspace

Ordnance Survey have this week launched a new free Greenspace layer in OS Maps which allows people to discover greenspaces across Britain.

With the aim of encouraging people to get outdoors, it provides an easy way to locate places for leisure and recreation from public parks and play areas, to sports facilities and even allotments.

As there continues to be an increasing focus on active travel as a means to improve health and wellbeing, Ordnance Survey hope that this freely available dataset will support initiatives to get people outside and moving. Beyond active travel plans, they also hope it will support environmental initiatives that include air quality, biodiversity, housing regeneration and flood resilience.
