Please, can you more clearly describe what distinguishes it from park and from grass only? I beleive that this exist on several places in Czech republic, but I might have different understanding that UK guys. Should there be trees in village green? Is it sort of less maintained park without paths? --Jakubt (talk) 08:16, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

The english Wikipedia page for "village green" is quite extensive, it should help you. Rafmar (talk) 20:21, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
and … it has a URL, and we are on The Web, where hyperlinking is possible … --Hubne (talk) 00:02, 18 May 2016 (UTC)
So maybe some of those descriptions should be copied to the OSM wiki page. I've seen people use village_green for any random patch of grass between apartment buildings in residential blocks. Or if the definition varies across countries, maybe there should be a warning on the wiki page to not use this in a country unless the definition is described on the localized wiki page.

Village green in Croatia

I decided to use this tag in Croatian villages. They often have a grassy area between the houses that was mostly used for gooses that would graze the grass, children that would play, and for community events. Czech version of the Wikipedia article about Village green has images that are similar to Croatian examples:

I'm not sure why this tag got an "exclusively British" meaning over the years. It looks like a pretty broad term to me. Janko (talk) 12:39, 9 May 2016 (UTC)
