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 node with amenity=parking or amenity=bicycle_parking some other parking tag or parking:lane=* on the road.

If possible, parking can be mapped with area or with additional properties and detail.

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.
