New Signage in Seven City Parks

Madhusudan Das Park

Bhubaneswar: Not only the Old Town area is decked up with heritage signage near the beautiful monuments, but seven major city parks under the Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) have got a new look with magnificent and meaningfully designed signage.

The seven city parks with signage and way findings by BDA include: Indira Gandhi Park, Biju Patnaik Park, Madhusudan Das Park, Buddha Jayanti Park, Kharavel Park, Shyama Prasad Mukherjee Park and Mahatma Gandhi Park.

Signage and way findings had previously been executed in three smart parks in Smart city district. In simple terms, way findings are refer to the systems that are employed to help tourists and visitors orient their position and get to their desired location.

Once properly implemented, the signage will help the tourists determine where they are, designate the route they should take, reassure them that they are following the correct route once they have committed, and finally, they should confirm arrival at the desired destination once it has been reached. They will help visitors navigate the course to their desired location while setting their minds at ease. They would help the users find basic facilities and points of interest inside the park, on their own. The way finding plan implemented in Bhubaneswar city parks aims to make the parks of Bhubaneswar easily navigable within and provide information to connect the parks to the cultural assets all around.

The map signage informs the visitors of all significant points of interest such as attractions, toilets, drinking water and pathways. Entry signage will indicate entrances for both abled and specially-abled persons. A comprehensive caution signage at each of the gate of the parks with dos and don’ts for the park premises is also added. Each point of interest has been provided with signage to indicate its presence.

The wayfindings are efforts of city planners and they have brought a new level of convenience to tourism by creating step-by-step guides to parks, points of interest and other “must-see” locations. Not only have their wayfinding systems improved user experiences, they have also allowed cities to brand themselves and promote their unique cultural landmarks. It also brought into attention, hidden attractions, such as the fountain and boat at Biju Patnaik Park, the amphitheatre at Buddha Jayanti Park, whale area in Madhusudan Das Park and many more spots previously scarcely visited.

“The signage in the Madhusudan Das Park near Pokhariput have given a new trendy and international look to our park. As a morning walker and an office-bearer of a resident welfare association nearby I feel proud to be part of the city, which has changed itself a lot for and during the World Cup Hockey,’’ said Nrupakishore Patnaik, president of Resident Welfare Association, Kalunanda Nagar, Pokhariput.

A morning walker at Biju Patnaik Park, M. Shantanu also added that the addition has given a new perspective to major city parks.

It can be added here that BDA has already taken up lighting of major flyovers across the city and major parks with beautiful LED lights under its Light Sculpture Project. These newly lighted places with smart ambience have become selfie points for the young crowd and visitors.
