community_centre=* is used to further describe the type of an object tagged as amenity=community_centre.

A community centre can have many forms in different cultures, and serve different kinds of communities, thus it is useful to characterise it further.

How to map

Draw the area campus of the community centre, comprising buildings and related open space. When there is no open space, draw the area building. If the geometry of the centre is not known or the centre occupies just a few rooms in a larger building, set a nodenode.

Tag with amenity=community_centre and community_centre=*.

If the facility serves a particular target group, add community_centre:for=*.
