Hi, I’m planning to make a national park in my country, Pactone, but I can’t figure out how. Can someone tell me?

Here’s some instructions on how to make a national park
alternatively you can create a relation
1. create a closed area of where you want your national park to be
2. create a relation and define the closed area as outer within the relation
3. add the following tags to the relation:
name=(name of park)
Hope this helps!

To add on to Intergan’s comment, I would recommend using a relation.
When I make relations I often also add leisure=nature_reserve along with boundary=national_park - but that’s redundant, I don’t think it has an effect on rendering either way.
Also, if you’re creating a protected area that’s not a national park, use boundary=protected_area in the relation instead of boundary=national_park - and the appropriate protect_class (optional, but worth adding).
