Hi all,
I'm taking a look at the Ontario Provincial Parks dataset, and will
enhance the current WMS layer (that has trails so far) with it.
We can have it available as simple boundaries, "boundary=nature_reserve"
We will also make a .gpx file version of it, as well as a transparent
Garmin Map from it.
The .osm files will be generated, listing ALL of the source data
fields, so its free to pick & choose.

The CanVec data probably doesnt list this, however "landuse=wood" will
certainly be around the area. -but Node data is probably available.

This Provincial park boundary map feature should NOT touch the
"landuse=wood" features, because provincial parks are located within
city boundaries, i dont think that they should actually touch borders,
... Or could they?

(btw, there is also the municiple boundary dataset available, but
havent yet looked at that in detail)

The 6 categories of Prov Parks are:
Wilderness; Nature Reserve; Cultural Heritage; Natural Environment;
Waterway; Recreational

Would it be fine to; list them all as "boundary=nature_reserve"?
