  1. The tags for the building type and the use can alternatively be placed on separate objects (e.g. a node with leisure=sports_centre + sport=swimming inside of an area with building=*). In this case indoor=yes can be added to the object inside of the building. leisure=sports_hall can be an alternative to leisure=sports_centre; compare Swimming and bathing#Swimming pool facility.
  2. On the grounds of the swimming pool there may be also a non-swimmer pool, a paddling pool a slide, the main thing is a suitable swimming pool.
