Is it land*use*=grass or land*cover*=grass? I tend to agree with Alessandro Sarretta who uses landcover...

I also have doubts about leisure=playground as it is not a physical feature but it describe the usage done of that space, not its characteristics. Also that very same space could be used for different things (/fairs, concerts, rallies, etc./) at different times...

TBH I don't have an answer to the problem, but I tend to agree that we should, A) describe the physical characteristics of the place, and, B) describe the fact that the place is of public interest...
