Amber and golden leaves grace the trees and a chill is in the air. Of course, that means the new year is around the corner. What are your plans to make your parks more accessible and user friendly in 2022? When most people think of parks, they think about unplugging, disconnecting, and simply living in nature. But for park administration, smart parks may be the wave of the future.
Smart Parking Amid Rugged Nature
Using technology at your park doesn’t have to compromise on it’s natural beauty. It also doesn’t- and shouldn’t- impinge on visitors’ encounters with the simplicity and splendor of nature. In fact, it can facilitate that experience. What more and more parks are discovering is that streamlining parking and helping visitors find available parking helps more people get into the park. It also removes the stress from their visits and helps them enjoy nature more.
Introducing Smarter Parking at Your Park
When you want to introduce technology to improve your parks, you probably want a simple, intuitive system that won’t detract from your park’s natural setting. OpenSpace from Parking Logix is the only parking counting system that uses sensors at entry and exit points instead of wiring them into every spot. The result is a system that delivers amazing accuracy at a fraction of the cost and without an invasive installation process. OpenSpace sensors can even be surface mounted for parks where digging is not allowed. It’s a simple way to create smarter parks.
The OpenSpace sensors keep count of how many spots are available at each of your parking lots. This data is available to you at any time on a simple, user friendly interface. The data can be shared with visitors in a variety of ways based on your individual needs. Digital signs can be mounted outside the park entrances, outside each lot, or wherever you’d like to place them. Signs can show availability at one lot or many. And data can also be shared on your park website or app. In short, your visitors can access info on where parking is and isn’t available at any given time. The result? A smarter park and a smoother, easier parking experience so visitors can begin their journey to disconnect and enjoy nature.
