Adding locations such as parks

I am a Level 7 Local Guide who has come across a number of locations that do not appear in Google Maps. They include small parks and cemeteries. I understand Google Maps has a way to add locations but parks and cemeteries are not among the allowed options. Is there any way I can add such locations?

Re: Adding locations such as parks

Hi @srschwinn, you add them just the way you add a missine business for example. On Google Maps, "Add a missing place"

Hello @srschwinn,


I think @deepakjhic had provided great information that you can follow and I've marked his answer as the solution to your question. 


Just as additional tips, if you have need more information about Google Maps, you can simply head to Google Maps Support or feel free to join the discussion for more in depth topics on the Google Maps Forum.
