Discussing car parks and places to park bicycles and other vehicles.



Parking is a place where people can park their vehicle.

See parking=* for the parking key that is used to specify the type of parking facility.

How to map

Minimal tagging is just to map a node with amenity=parking or another parking tag like amenity=bicycle_parking, depending on the type of parking. If possible, parking can be mapped with an area and tagged with additional properties and detail.

Street parking can be mapped on the road way (highway=*) itself.

The parking=* key can be used together with amenity=parking to specify the type of parking facility. Most used values are:

Cars & motor vehicle parking

  • amenity=parking - The main tag covering most conventional car parks, coach parks etc. Many additional tags are listed on this page.
  • amenity=parking_entrance - For entrances to parking lots. Can be used to map parking facilities, especially when they are underground.

Bicycle parking

Stroller parking

Boat parking

Private/residential parking

  • building=garage - For single-user or single-owner private garage building.
  • building=garages - For buildings which are blocks of private garages, where each garage space has a different owner.
  • tourism=caravan_site - For a place where caravans / motorhomes / recreational vehicles can stay overnight, or longer.
