Creating a park or other type of public space includes a lot of little details. One of these details that should not be overlooked is signage for the area. On a basic level, this signage will provide information and direction. It can also encourage learning, set and maintain an image, communicate rules, and more.
Location of these signs is key to meeting specific goals and needs set forth in the public space. Placing them near other amenities like benches, restrooms and more is a good way to achieve these goals. They have a larger impact when placed in conjunction with other features in the space.
A few different types of signs needed for parks and public spaces are:
To help visitors stay oriented to their surroundings and know how to find certain locations within the area, maps are needed at the entry points as well as set distances. Maps guide visitors and highlight points of interest.
- Educational Signs
Inform visitors of events that happened in a certain spots or other unique aspects of the space. They can also be a way to let visitors know the rules of the area such as all pets need to be on leashes.
- Directional Signage
To help visitors find the right path or location, directional signage should be posted throughout the area. They can be near landmarks, where trails split off, close to restrooms, etc.
