    Welcome to the forum.

    Please note my corrections above. Only one punctuation mark is required at the end of a sentence and you must start every sentence with a capital letter. Also, note that I have changed your thread title. Titles should include some/all of the words/phrases you are asking us about.

    You will find, the more you use the forum, that it makes it much easier to get answers if you provide complete sentences for us to consider. Please write a full sentence containing the words. I can tell you that it is possible to use a noun after both words.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You can, though I would use outdoor in your example.

    outdoor is used as an adjective, so say an outdoor area

    outdoors is used as an adverb, so say play outdoors
