I would think the actual location of the spots would be important,
especially when there's a point of interest at each end of the parking
lot.

(or something less fancy) is what I think of a pavilion as.

agrees that the park has "rental pavilions" (second icon in the

It seems to be the same difference between natural=wood and
landuse=forest. In one case they left the old natural trees, while in
the other they planted new trees (usually palm trees around here). If
you have a bench next to a tree, the former is likely to provide more
shade.
