I would like to propose more detailed main tags for bathing related facilities. I think water park should be reserved to water parks. Apparently there are no good English single words for what is called
Hallenbad (indoor swimming facility)
Freibad (outdoor swimming facility)
Erlebnisbad (water park?)
in German (native speakers, please correct me).
Thermal baths should be differentiated I believe.
These are the main 4 types of these facilities  that come to mind. The outdoor facilities can be either pools or in natural waters (rivers typically).
Beach resorts are another category yet.
