Obtain a KML file for an existing place

Is there a way to obtain a KML file for an existing place, say, this place:


I’d like to create a custom place based on this existing place.

Thanks in advance,

Though that place was added before some restrictions were put in place, so you might not be able to add a similar place if it doesn’t meet these criteria:

Must have at least one polygon be under 1 MB (5 MB for site curators), and have an area smaller than the US state of Texas.

Thanks! That helps a lot.
