A  swimming pool is a place built for swimming as a recreational activity or sport, typically taking the form of an excavated and lined pool.

How to map

Draw as an area area along the outline of the swimming pool, or add a node node at the center. Add leisure=swimming_pool.

The tag leisure=swimming_pool should only be used for the water area of the swimming pool. A facility containing one or more swimming pools (mainly focused on swimming as a sport) should be tagged leisure=sports_centre + sport=swimming.

When micro-mapping, backyard and personal swimming pools should be tagged as access=private as to not confuse them with public swimming pools.

Tags to use in combination

  • access=*: use access=private for private swimming pools and access=yes for swimming pools (or facilities) that are accessible for the public but may require paying an entrance fee
  • fee=*: to indicate whether or not an access fee is charged
  • sport=swimming: swimming pools suitable for doing swimming as a sport
  • length=*: length of the swimming pool in metres
  • location=*: location of the swimming pool: indoor, outdoor or roof.
  • depth=*, mindepth=*+maxdepth=*: depth or minimal/maximal depth of the swimming pool (if no unit is given, metre is assumed, see Map Features/Units)
  • heating=*: use heating=yes on heated swimming pools or heating=no for no heating
  • lifeguard=*: to indicate whether or not a lifeguard is present
  • nudism=*: to indicate whether or not a nudism is allowed
  • salt=*: to indicate if the pool is salt water or freshwater. tidal/rock/ocean pools would be salt=yes and aquatic centre pools in the suburbs would be salt=no.
  • tidal=*: to distinguish tidal/ocean/rock pools built in the intertidal area of a coastline filled with sea water at high tide from suburban swimming pools filled via the water network.
  • swimming_lanes=* still rarely used, this tag can indicate the number of available swimming lanes
