The tag water=reflecting pool is used with natural=water to map a reflecting pool: a water feature found in gardens, squares, and at memorial sites, which consists of a shallow pool of water, undisturbed by fountain jets, for a calm reflective surface.

How to map

Draw the reflecting pool area outline. If there is an island in the reflecting pool, you may need to create a multipolygon relation.

Add natural=water and water=reflecting_pool.
