Greg's description matches mine. Used for recreation, not conservation,
usually just grass, maybe a few trees scattered, sometimes there could be a
playground there, maybe benches, maybe bbqs, ie.

National Parks, Marine Parks etc would be boundary=protected_area.

Looking at your proposal Steve, I can see the gap you're trying to fill, an
area with a single name but might have areas of natural=wood and
leisure=park all forming the same grounds. I think Central Park, NYC is
probably the best example because it's likely to be understood more
globally, as far as I know it's a mix of forest areas, recreation areas,
but still the whole area is known as Central Park.
