Our Task

This project started as a wayfinding plan to connect people to parks in a neighborhoods in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Out of the plan grew a demonstration project which included 15 signs connecting Garfield Park to the Oxford Trails in Grand Rapids. Signs were made of polycore and were mounted on existing posts where available. The demonstration project took place in Fall 2017 and two different sign sizes were evaluated.
