how can you add to amenities to 1 node without using e.g. a semi-colon ?
so you have


Semi-colons in tags such as amenity and leisure (and other "main"
tags) will often cause problems with the other tags. The reason is, as
you pointed out, one does not know to which amenity or leisure the
other tags applies.

There are several solutions possible (depending on the case)

- tag them as separate points (not a good idea here, as 1 is in the other)
- tag one of them as area, position the other as node inside the other
- another tagging scheme
