Marks a children's playground. These are outdoor (sometimes indoor) areas for children to play. Often they provide equipment such as swings, climbing frames and roundabouts. They are often part of a larger park, but are also found in residential areas.

How to Map

Create an area of the grounds and tag it leisure=playground.

If you are not sure of its border you can place a single node in the middle and tag it leisure=playground, but the area is preferred.

Tags to use in combination

  • name=* - name of the playground
  • surface=* - grass, sand, rubbercrumb, woodchips etc
  • wheelchair=yes/no/limited if the equipment can be used by wheelchair users
  • min_age=* Minimum age of the user in years
  • max_age=* Maximum age of the user in years
  • operator=* - eg, the name of the local council or school
  • opening_hours=*
  • access=private/customers for playgrounds unavailable to public
  • indoor=yes for indoor playgrounds (outdoor is default)
  • fee=yes when entrance is charged (typical for indoor situations)
  • supervised=yes for places with non-parental supervision of children (no is default)

Playground equipment

Equipment and features within the playground should be mapped individually as separate nodes/areas, details are found here: playground=*.

Fewer mappers prefer to describe the available equipment as a summary list with prefix-tags described in playground:=*.

Additional infrastructure


Tip: Take care not to look too shifty while photo mapping a playground. Do it from a distance, or when no children are around
