The free Greenspace layer in OS Maps is the easiest way to discover greenspaces across Britain. And it just got even better as we've added Country Parks, Nature Reserves and Access Land!
Discover the great outdoors! 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.
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.
Please check public access to all greenspaces before you travel.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now required to think differently about our outdoor activity. Planning outings, being aware of the risks and not attempting any activity you are not familiar with will help keep everyone safe. Exercising in crowded areas where social distancing may be difficult should be avoided.
Please remember to follow Government guidelines when spending time outside. Check our COVID pages to find outdoor activity guidance by region. You must always try to stay 2-metres (6ft) away from anyone outside of your household. You should continue to self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
When travelling to outdoor spaces, it is important that we respect the rules in each country and individual region across the UK and do not travel into or out of different areas where it would be inconsistent with guidance or regulations issued by the relevant devolved administration. In England, the postcode checker can tell you the local COVID alert level in your area. More information on Government guidelines across the UK can be found here.
