Wikidata

A swimming area is an officially designated place where you can swim in a body of water such as a reservoir, river, lake, or the sea. It could be marked by signs or buoys and/or may be supervised by lifeguards.

How to map

Draw the outline area of the water area. Add leisure=swimming_area.

If there is a lifeguard on duty, add either a node for emergency=lifeguard if they are in a fixed location; or, if they are mobile, add lifeguard=yes to the area.

If there are no lifeguards in the area, include lifeguard=no.
