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. Even though parks are typically open to the public, they can be fenced off or temporarily closed, like at night time.

How to Map

Draw as an area area along the outline and tag it with leisure=park and name=*.

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.

Lakes and forests in a park belong to it, so don't use separate multipolygons to exclude them!

Parks may contain one or more leisure=pitch, which should be tagged separately.

National Parks

The normal view of a park is a green area within or near a town or city. Parks in isolated, rural locations (namely areas called "National Parks") are a different matter. leisure=nature_reserve and boundary=national_park could be used, and not this leisure=park tag. example. There is also boundary=protected_area.
