Thank you Elizabeth, I did not know the difference between bathe and bath.

The key: "leisure" is considered a physical key, I think it is supposed to be a
place and not an activity. 

My thoughts have been on a physical tag like leisure=bathing_area,
leisure=public_bath or just simply leisure=bath. The later one would be a tag
for all kind of bathing facilities, both outdoor and indoor. Maybe the noun
"bath" isn´t a good one, it might imply some kind of building or pool.
