Data set description

This data set provides information on the names and locations of City parks. The data may be displayed as point features (a single point representing the location of the park; this is unlikely to be the geometric centroid of the park) or polygon features (a polygon or area coloured green to show the extent of the park boundaries).

Name, address, latitude and longitude, and boundaries (boundaries are for polygon features only)
