You can get quite a bit of information... what editor are you using?

You can define the schoolyard to reflect that it is a school yard. You
can also define the ball diamonds etc.

Even when digging deeper, you might not know what the person was up to
if they didn't put a comment on their changeset. Look at the Brentwood
Park polygon above, and tell me what Sundance was doing... there's no

Now you need to go back add the commercial areas, fix all those bad
CanVec building outlines etc... There's always more to do in OSM! :)
