Hello Pampong,

Welcome to OpenStreetMap. You can add name of the park to the polygon which mapped around the park and delete the node. It's not good to have park tag to node. Happy mapping.

Hi Steve, thanks for contributing to OpenStreetMap! It looks like you created an area feature without any tags. If it's a wetland (which I guess from your changeset comment), it needs an additional tag to clarify that, so it will show up on the map.
