The default is that you can pray anywhere. There is no obligation to pray in a place that is specially designated for prayer:

وجعلت لنا الأرض كلها مسجدا

the whole earth has been made a mosque for us

Muslim

حيثما أدركتك الصلاة فصل، والأرض لك مسجد

Wherever the time for the prayer comes upon you, perform the prayer, for all the earth is a place of worshipping for you.

Bukhari

There are only exceptions in this rule where prayer is disliked for example a place where there is filth (bath, toilet, garbage dump, animal beds and slaughtering places) or a graveyard or in a church\temple of non-muslims or in the middle of a path where it blocks and hinders other people. Some of these are disagreed upon.
