Village Green
A village green is a common open area within a village or other settlement. Historically, a village green was common grassland with a pond for watering cattle and other stock,[citation needed] often at the edge of a rural settlement, used for gathering cattle to bring them later on to a common land for grazing.[citation needed] Later, planned greens were built into the centres of villages.[1] The village green also provided, and may still provide, an open-air meeting place for the local people, which may be used for public celebrations such as May Day festivities
