Greenfields include agricultural lands, metropolitan parks, greenways, ecological corridors in metro areas and other places that help delineate one village, city or town from another or where development is occuring and where it is not. When they are protected, greenfields can serve to promote growth in already developed areas and curb urban sprawl. As parks and greenways, they also provide the green infrastructure essential to livable communities.
