a search for 'Golden Spike' yields nada. I was about to draw a
boundary=national_park around it with a name tag, so it would be a
little easier to find. But it turns out the NPS has a boundary
shapefile for all National Parks, Historic Sites, Rivers, Parkways,
Lakeshores and more than a dozen other categories.
I wouldn't object to importing park boundaries.
But, I find boundary=national_park odd, relative to the rest of
boundary=*. For truly large parks, it makes some sense.
A related issue is tagging the polygon rather than the boundary, and the
landuse=conservation/leisure=recreatation_ground tagging (not really
right for parks, but actually the combination describes the NPS
So I have a mild preference (not backed up by volunteering) to make the
park boundary/polygon tagging a bit more baked before importing.
