A park. Open, green area for recreation, usually municipal. These are outdoor areas, typically grassy/green areas, set aside of leisure and recreation.
Typically (or pretty much always) open to the public, but may be fenced off, and may be closed; e.g., at night time.
Footpaths (highway=footway ways) leading into a park from a road, should always be connected to the road for routing purposes. It's debatable whether they should connect to the park area with a shared node, or cross over the polygon without connecting. TODO discuss
Note: Lakes and forests in/around a park belongs to it, so don't use a multipolygon to exclude them!
The normal view of a park is a green area within a town or cities. Parks in rural locations (e.g., areas named "National parks") are a totally different kind of thing. leisure=nature_reserve and boundary=national_park could be used, and not this leisure=park tag. example. There is also this proposal: boundary=protected_area.
