Place
This page describes the Place type.
This type is derived from https://schema.org/Place, which means that any of this type's properties within schema.org may also be used. Note however the properties on this page must be used in preference if a relevant property is available.

Property
Expected Type
Description
address
PostalAddress - or - Text
A structured PostalAddress object for the Place.
Ideally the address should be provided using the PostalAddress structured format. Google Reserve requires https://schema.org/PostalAddress and will not accept plain text addresses.
Example
"address": { "@type": "PostalAddress", "streetAddress": "Raynes Park High School, 46A West Barnes Lane", "addressLocality": "New Malden", "addressRegion": "London", "postalCode": "NW5 3DU", "addressCountry": "GB" }
geo
The geo coordinates of the Place.
Example
"geo": { "latitude": 51.4034423828125, "longitude": -0.2369088977575302, "@type": "GeoCoordinates" }
Property
Expected Type
Description
@id
URL
A unique URI-based identifier for the record.
@id properties are used as identifiers for compatibility with JSON-LD. The value of such a property must always be an absolute URI that provides a stable globally unique identifier for the resource, as described in RFC3986.
The primary purpose of the URI format in this context is to provide natural namespacing for the identifier. Hence, the URI itself may not resolve to a valid endpoint, but must use a domain name controlled by the resource owner (the organisation responsible for the OpenActive open data feed).
Example
"@id": "https://id.bookingsystem.example.com/places/12345"
amenityFeature
An array listing the Ammenities of the Place.
Example
"amenityFeature": [ { "name": "Changing Facilities", "value": true, "@type": "ChangingFacilities" }, { "name": "Showers", "value": false, "@type": "Showers" }, { "name": "Lockers", "value": true, "@type": "Lockers" }, { "name": "Towels", "value": false, "@type": "Towels" }, { "name": "Creche", "value": false, "@type": "Creche" }, { "name": "Parking", "value": true, "@type": "Parking" } ]

Example
"description": "Raynes Park High School in London"

An image or photo that depicts the place, e.g. a photo taken at a previous event.

Beta Extension properties

These properties are defined in the OpenActive Beta Extension. The OpenActive Beta Extension is defined as a convenience to help document properties that are in active testing and review by the community. Publishers should not assume that properties in the beta namespace will either be added to the core specification or be included in the namespace over the long term.
