Urban open space

Urban open spaces are sites within settlements dedicated to relaxation and sporting activities. SThese include green and open spaces within and on the outskirts of settlements. They are constituted from relatively heterogeneous categories: parks and gardens, allotments, playing fields and stadia, camping sites, swimming pools, golf courses, zoos and botanical gardens, fun parks, game reserves and cemeteries. When horticultural sites are located within urban sites these also treated as a form of urban open space. This term corresponds with the object group designation of the former ATKIS Basis-DLM (Version 3.2).
