Hi Richard Thomas Stockdale,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. Your contributions to the map are greatly appreciated. Great that you added the park name here. But a node cannot be a park, as it is supposed to be an area. The park is mapped with a polygon ...

Hello, There's no need to remove descriptive tags for areas when you make amendments. If the tag is still relevant please leave it.
I've reinstated several tags you removed as they are still relevant.

I guess you could mark it as service. It might even be the name you added -- but it would depend on the addresses of the buildings near it.
