Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


How can I tag an outdoor gym? This is a facility where one may do strength training usually involving body weight, yet it is more complex than just a bar/ladder.

There have been a couple of them installed in my town and I know it's getting popular worldwide.

Any ideas?

Perhaps you mean leisure=pitch; sport=fitness? Wait a minute, I found this: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:leisure%3Dfitness_station Seems to be the best match among already existing tags.

Personally, I wouldn't use "leisure=sport_centre" (because it isn't one).

I was unaware of "leisure=fitness_station" (and hadn't tagged the ones that I'm aware of locally because I couldn't think what to tag them as) so thanks for finding that!

… and "thumbs down" for overly using this help site as a tag-voting platform. I think it is quite annoying to keep pushing up the question just to write a new "+1" line. One such a line is enough, isn't it? There is a "thumbs up" icon to show that you think it is a good comment.
