A village green is a distinctive part of a village centre. It's an area of common land (usually grass but may also be a lake), in the centre of a village (quintessentially English - defined separately from 'common land' under the Commons Registration Act 1965 and the Commons Act 2006).

In Spain the tag has been used consensually to map Paseos: often rather different in appearance to English village greens, but sharing the functional purpose of a common shared space for inhabitants and their activities.

The German page compares such spaces with the (de)Wikipedia-16px.png Dorfanger in the East and with the (de)Wikipedia-16px.png Brink in the Northwest of Central Europa.

Tagging controversy

This tag is very often not used to map the distinctive part of a village centre as described above, but to map all kinds of mixed vegetation (plants, bushes, flowers, small trees, grass), mostly in urban areas, very often maintained by the Municipality. See the photos on the talk page for this type of use.

Such use of the tag is disputed, and a better tagging for these situations needs to be defined.
