When we talk about private network or public network they are made by Administrator so every tenant can use it.

Private networks are specific to a tenant so until and unless you make a whole lot of changes to the design of openstack it wont work.

What I can suggest you is there is a way the instances that are made by different tenant's can communicate with each other. For that you need to create a router which provides L3 connectivity between private networks, meaning that different tenants can reach each other's instances and communicate with each other.

I hope it will satisfy you use case

Simple! Create rbac policies for the network you want to share! openstack rbac policy create i think is the cli but not really sure. You must be using keystone v3 and liberty release (not sure about kilo).
