The tag protect_class=21 specifies area as protected due to religious reasons or as sacred areas or as gathering places or for recreation

As this mixes various completely different reasons for protecting area it is considered as problematic by data consumers[1].

protect_class=recreation and protection_class=recreation were proposed as a partial replacement - better due to being more specific and having human-readable value.

Examples:

Jones Beach State Park
