Town and village greens originate in customary law, where long-standing recreational use of land by the local inhabitants came to be recognised and protected by the courts. Greens are areas of land where local people have for many years indulged in lawful sports and pastimes, which might include organised or informal games, picnics, fetes, dog walking and similar activities. A green can be in private ownership but many greens are owned or maintained by town and parish councils.
