Kawasan lapang yang menghijau/berumput
Explanation:
'Green' here describes all 3 places - lungs, golf courses and parks.
A lung is an open space, specifically, in the middle of a city where people go to relax, breathe some fresh air, etc.
'Berumput' - well, of course places such as these would have grass. Therefore, I think 'menghijau' would be more appropriate; giving an impression of serenity/fresheness/coolness (if that's what being promoted).
