Neighborhood Greens

Open green space that range is size from a mews to 2 acres. Unlike a Neighborhood Park they do have playground equipment, but provide room for local gatherings and children’s play.  There is vegetation and natural scenery but does not provide an isolated experience for the user. 

Ideally, they are sited to enhance the visual quality of a neighborhood and the pedestrian experience. In more dense urban neighborhoods, they are cost effective ways to evenly provide open space.  These spaces, however, are not a substitute for larger neighborhood parks or civic greens. 

Examples: Fox Street Mews (Baldwin Park), Dickson Azalea Park (Orlando).
