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


I've noticed that a park is not marked as such:


So, I created an account and went to edit and I've noticed that this is already marked as a park:


All I have done is add an edit to give the park a name.

Why is it that the park is not being shown as park in main map?

I've found a way to see history of the feature and I can see that it was not marked as a park until 1 month ago: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/100699948/history

How long does it take for these changes to be applied to main map?

Updates usually happen within minutes - see how-often-does-the-main-mapnik-map-get-updated.

In your case https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/100699948 is also still tagged as landuse=village_green. Apparently in the default map this takes priority over the park colour, so it shows up in a slightly different green. Other maps which are OSM-based may handle this differently.

Please check if the definition of village_green https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/DE:Tag:landuse%3Dvillage_green matches the real-world presence/use of St Alban-Tor Park. If not it may be good to remove the additional village_green tag.

You misunderstood the Overpass query you got. Look at the first line of it. That will explain why you don't see it.

Also, have a look at https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/102/i-have-made-edits-but-they-dont-show-up-on-the-map (which is not really relevant, as the parks is already there on the map, only your query won't show it!)
