Description:

 

This data layer contains open space parcels and polygons that are portions of larger parcels where only part of the parcel is considered open space. Open Space includes parks and recreation areas, conservation land, state land, watershed land, traffic islands and private land that is protected. It does not include Conservation or Wetland Restrictions as those lands are in different data layers. Some areas of open space exist along rights of way of paper streets. These areas are generally not shown as they are legally part of a right of way.

Most of these areas are included as part of the City Of Newton’s Open Space Plan (renewed every 5 years or so). There is a map code field that ties to the numbers on the maps and lists in this plan.
