Civic Greens

Civic greens can range from 1 to 10 acres. Their purpose is to provide open space in an urban setting that can often utilize an existing urban block.  Unlike a neighborhood green, they are fronted by civic uses and are valued community gathering places.

Examples: Centennial Park (Sanford), Central Park (Winter Park).
