Interesting, if only to note it's inaccuracies: a few parks are missing
half of their full area in my locale.
Is National Trust/CRoW land in a separate database?

There are ten types of green space in the dataset:
"Allotments Or Community Growing Spaces"
"Other Sports Facility"
"Public Park Or Garden"
Click on an area to show the type and the name if it has one.
Often the OS open data is a bit of a crude representation but this
looks a pretty good. OS described it as "public open space" but it
certainly includes some privately-owned spaces such as private golf
courses. I think this is a useful dataset to check an area to see if
OSM is missing something.
Feedback is welcome. If it's useful, I'll probably sort out the tile
sizes and change the colours for each type.
