Status: In use

A park is an area of open space provided for recreational use, usually designed and in semi-natural state with grassy areas, trees and bushes. Parks are often but not always municipal.

Typically open to the public, but may be fenced off, and may be temporarily closed e.g. at night time.

Mapping parks

ElementArea.png - You might possibly mark a very small park with a node, but even for small parks it is more useful to draw in an area.

Ways (highway=path or highway=footway) 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 separate multipolygon to exclude them!

Parks may contain one or more leisure=pitch to be tagged separately.

National Parks

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.
