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

There's a park in my city that's been mapped out with a lot of detail. However, all the small tree-covered areas within the park are tagged as both natural=wood and leisure=park. (examples: 1, 2, overpass query)

Is that the correct way to tag them? Shouldn't they just be natural=wood, without an additional leisure=park? They're not individual parks after all...

Typically you don't nest polygons of the same type. So a park within a park is not generally accepted tagging. Both of your examples are also tagged as natural=wood which is fine, no problem with having a wood within a park. (Though I prefer landcover=trees even if that is not generally accepted nor rendered at this time.)

Thanks for the quick answer! In that case I'm going to submit an edit removing those leisure=park tags.
