How to activate your parks and trails using signage.

Parks and trails provide an opportunity for people to engage in physical activity, which is essential for maintaining good health. They encourage people to be active, and also provide a place to walk, run, bike, or just enjoy the outdoors. They can help to attract new businesses and residents to a community and create opportunities for outdoor recreation, which can be a draw for tourists and a source of revenue for local businesses.

Hi Signs can help activate your parks and trails through a well designed signage system. Whether you’re implementing a new sign system or updating an existing program, Hi Signs can provide directional signs, park maps, trail markers, warning signs, and interpretive signs that provide information about the history, geography, flora, and fauna of the area.

Key benefits of parks and trails systems

  • Improved Health: Parks and trails provide opportunities for people to engage in physical activity, leading to improved health and wellness. Signs can help visitors find the best trails for their fitness level and encourage them to explore new areas.
  • Increased Community Engagement: Signs can help foster a sense of community by providing information about local events, programs, and volunteer opportunities. This can help build stronger connections between neighbors and promote a sense of community ownership over the parks and trails.
  • Enhanced Visitor Experience: Signs can provide valuable information about the history, wildlife, and natural features of parks and trails, which can enhance the visitor experience and increase the appreciation for these important community assets.
  • Better Accessibility: Signs can help make parks and trails accessible to all users, including those with disabilities. This can improve the quality of life for those who may not otherwise have access to these important community resources.
  • Environmental Awareness: Signs can educate visitors about the importance of preserving the natural environment and provide tips for minimizing the impact of their activities. This can help promote environmental awareness and encourage visitors to adopt sustainable practices.
  • Boosted Local Economy: Parks and trails can attract visitors from outside the community, boosting local businesses and providing economic benefits. Signs can help promote these assets and highlight nearby dining and shopping options.
