Hi, Is it possible to add a park or recreational area to google maps. There is a park near me that I cant see listed and would like to add it, but there doesn't seem to be an appropriate category. It is a park that is popular with dog walkers etc, and is actually trying to apply for "local nature reserve" status. Locally, it is referred to as "Peartree Green" and can be found here, the area between Hazel Rd and Peartree Avenue.

Dog Park would not be a good category. Just because people walk their dog in a park doesn't make it a Dog Park.
Park and Garden would be appropriate

Hi, I have attempted to add the site and think I may be doing something wrong. I assume I make all suggestions via Google maps, and have been on there to try and suggest an edit. It seems to be heavily weighted towards adding a business , when I actually want to add a park. This is a pic of the area I am on about, the area drawn (badly!) in blue should be green on the map, to represent the fact its a park (or area of open space / wildlife) - like areas nearby. The colour Google have given would suggest that it is an industrial area. So, I guess that is my question...how do I get that area changed to green, and a place mark naming it "Peartree Green". If I click on "Report a data problem" I can only report on roads around that area.

Sorry, have noticed something else....that small area of green that is within the blue outlined area I have drawn, is where a church is located. Its marked on Google earth, but not in Google maps. Its actually the oldest Anglican Church in the world.
How can I add that?

What we can do is, we add the Park as a Point.
When it is approved, it might be just got published as a Point only. When Google revisted the area, they usually will update the Area of the Park then it will be shown as Green.
Of course there are always exceptions. Please see https://www.localguidesconnect.com/t5/Mapping-Your-World/A-Park-is-not-rendered-in-Green/m-p/15351
