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

I'm a beginner and starting little by little. I've simply started adding areas that are missing in my neighborhood, parks, playgrounds and such. But in many cases it's not simply a case of drawing up an area. I'll give a clear example: I have a park which covers an area, but there are portions inside that are private and closed. I want to somehow exclude them from the park. Ideally I would like to eventually be able to do it to all the bigger parks in my area, because unfortunately many of them have had pieces cut out by land investors.

I have seen this done by somehow having the perimeter of the area marked as an outer line and than adding an inner line (and I think this way the simple area which was a way becomes a relation). Can this be done without JOSM? I've been trying to find info on this on my own but no luck

The construct used in such cases are called multipolygons

In iD info on this can be found in the tutorial: press 'H' and then click 'Relations'
