Yes, and that is the good thing. The general purpose map will just show
you a playground icon, without further implementation, and special-purpose
maps give you the ability to filter for specific ones.

Look at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:sport%3Dclimbing
where I'm happy enough if a general map shows me the sport in general,
while special-purpose layers can be added for all these details:


There you have them all, outdoor, indoor, fees, supervision ...
And overpass allows the fast creation of them.
