Finding greenspaces has never been easier! The new free Greenspace layer in OS Maps is the easiest way to discover greenspaces across Britain.

Whether it’s a quick click online or a simple tap on the app, OS Maps lets you find different places for leisure and recreation across England, Scotland and Wales.

The Scottish Greenspace Map, released by greenspace scotland and the Scottish Government in 2011, was the first of its kind anywhere in the world. This new project with Ordnance Survey updates the Scottish Greenspace Map and extends it to England and Wales, with the aim of making it easier for people to find and access every green corner of Britain’s neighbourhoods, towns and cities.

Stroll across a public park, run around a playing field, exercise at a sports facility, have fun in a play area, or reap the rewards of renting an allotment. Greenspace is Britain’s most comprehensive catalogue of accessible places.

You can access OS Greenspace in OS Map through your web browser: just go to osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/greenspace And OS Greenspace is in the OS Maps app, available to download for for free on both iOS (Apple) and Android devices.It’s free to use for everyone.
