Public showers, where people can bathe under water sprays. May be run as a local amenity by the government, or part of commercial provisions. May charge a fee.

How to map

Place a node centrally at the location of the showers amenity and tag it amenity=shower. If possible use an area for a shower building and add a node entrance=* to the entrance on the outline. (This is helpful for blind navigation users).

Tags used in combination

Standard combination tags:

Ideas for "access" tags:

  • unisex=yes - unisex shower
  • access=customers - used if shower available only for customers

Additional tags:

Showers inside places

Camping sites often have showers for customers, usually in a central services building. Use shower=yes in this cases.


Shower road signs


We could do with a better photo illustrating a shower, preferably a specifically public shower.
