|Tools for this tag|
The key playground=* describes devices and installations on a playground. It should be tagged to separate objects within the area of a playground leisure=playground. Only when the position of the individual objects cannot be mapped yet, the tag can be added to the playground node as a first step.

Relation between playground equipment and the playground area
It is very helpful to associate the playground area with the playground equipment. To do this, use a relation as described in Relations/Proposed/Site. The relation should be tagged like this:
Playgrounds, their structures and individual devices are often themed, mimicking ships, castles, cars or animals.
|Ship play structure|| playground:theme=ship
| Octopus play structure
(popular in Japan)
|Castle play structure|| playground:theme=castle
|Rocket play structure|| playground:theme=rocket
|Springy horse|| playground:theme=horse
|Springy cow|| playground:theme=cow
