A place where people can do swimming.
This is one of many sports tags under sport=*.
Swimming pools and beaches
This tag is usually attached to beaches or swimming pools. It would make sense use it to mark areas or ways in water as well.
It is not clear if this should be applied to none, some or all pools. It might be more appropriate for swimming pools suitable for "sportive" swimming - please discuss. There are about 10 times more swimming pools in taginfo then there are sport=swimming objects: only 5% of swimming pools are tagged with sport=swimming but 42% of sport=swimming tags are attached to leisure=swimming_pool and further (partly overlapping) 37% to amenity=swimming_pool.
Access and fees
- access=private, access=customers or access=no should be used for places not open to general public
- fee=* can be used to indicate whether a fee is charged
