Some parks in London are no longer shaded green: Regent's Park and Victoria Park to name but two.

I frequently use the green parks to locate things on the map, and now being able to easily see parks makes it a little trickier! See the following for examples in London:

I just noticed that as well. It's incredibly frustrating, not to mention that it makes london look like it's full of giant cark parks. Why did they do this I wonder?

Maybe when they unshade Central Park and Yosemite National Park our American cousins will wake up and start complaining too! Until then - don't hold your breath I reckon!

Hi, I live in Washington DC and I noticed the same thing here. It's hard to find my house on the map now that the big park I live next to is gray. I'm officially adding my yank voice to the complaints!

I actually wrote a blog post about this the other day (http://urbanmovements.posterous.com/google-maps-the-de-parking-of-regents-park) and sent it on to Ed Parsons (mapping guy at Google) through Twitter. He says that it seems like an error and he's going to get someone to look into it. HTH.
