Or the intersection of Mundsburger Damm, Uhlenhorster Weg, Heideweg, and Birkenau, just to the south west on Mundsburger Damm.  Drawing areas from aerial pics or from carefully selected waypoints seems straightforward to me, putting ways "just so" that the medians between the ways fall on the actual borders between the areas seems unnecessarily complicated, and would likely require significant support in the editor.

Maybe first try to add the kerbs, "green" areas, bus bay as
highway=service and the parking lot.

There are probably even more barriers in this area.

Are these footways really highway=footways with bicycle=yes ?
The cycleways are track seperately and at the roads as cycleway=track
but nothing about a sidewalk.
