I don't know about other places, but here in Utah (USA), there are storm drain overflow basins that can otherwise be used as parks. These places are obviously basins that have been planted in grass. They have large, grated pipes for entry and exit of storm-drain water. They sort of act as buffer areas in case the downstream capacity is insufficient for the upstream flow. However, since they are planted in grass, they can be used as parks during most of the other time.

How do I tag such areas? In the absence of anything that I've found I've tagged these areas as parks with a note as to their other purpose. — Val42 16:39, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Dog/Pet Park

How should I tag Dog parks? They are parks designed for dogs, usually containing dog amusements and facilities. Example

If it has not been tagged otherwise, why not start with leisure=dogpark? --Larsf 13:57, 28 March 2009 (UTC)


What about horisontal bars, balance beams? They are often installed in parks near a track. I think, leisure=fitness is good.

Tree-top adventure parks

Okay, tough one. There are plenty of adventure parks which consists of ropes, platforms, pulley runs and other funstuff built on trees, which can be played using alpine equipmnent but it's for everybody, from age 2-3 up to anyone who can climb a ladder.

I do not even know how they're called in English. Here around we'd call them "Adventure parks" but maybe this has nothing to do with English language. :-) The equipment seem to originate in France, and I've met them first in Switzerland (Point Sud at Champoussin), but now they're widespread in Hungary as well.

I would say leisure=treetop_adventure could fit (or leisure=adventure_park, if it's acceptable in English).

See some: [1] [2] [3]

Feedback is very welcome. --grin 17:50, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Wikipedia calls them Adventure Parks [4] --SveLil 09:26, 20 September 2011 (BST)

There are adventure parks that are not about treetop climbing, for example Adventure Park Geelong. I advise leisure=treetop_climbing --SHARCRASH (talk) 13:55, 23 October 2018 (UTC)


Need a new leisure tag leisure=Red_Light_District to describe both legaland non-legal areas of prostitution. This includes such high profile areas as Hamburg's Reeperbahn, London's Soho and Central Amsterdam (appologese to the Dutch, I dont know the region's name). This should be leisure (possibly controversially) rather than landuse because red light districts will often occupy reail areas (streets) or other places where the landuse is different from the nocternal activities. 10:47, 29 May 2011 (BST)

New value bird_hide and wildlife_hide

I propose to add two new values leisure=bird_hide and leisure=wildlife_hide. This tagging have the majority usage today. --Rudolf 09:29, 18 June 2012 (BST)

leisure=bird_hide is used 693 times, man_made=bird_hide is used 14 times. leisure=wildlife_hide is used 141 times, man_made=wildlife_hide is used 6 times, shelter_type=wildlife_hide is used 19 times. You can use leisure=bird_hide and leisure=wildlife_hide also as additional tag for any kind of structure. --Rudolf 07:41, 20 June 2012 (BST)


There is no tag leisure=fitness or leisure=bodybuilding to mark the designated area, in the open air, for these types of recreation. --Władysław Komorek (talk) 11:44, 15 July 2014 (UTC)


See the hammock in the image depicted at the description of the key; we still haven't a tag for it. So proposed: object; proposed name; agreed name: Sergio (talk) 14:17, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
