E PARK H T O T S S E C C A
Visitors to the park have immediate and basic needs which are under-served or dispersed throughout an area. By creating Park Hubs as organizing elements for orientation and interaction with a park volunteer or ranger, new and returning visitors can start their experience on a positive note. The Hubs are distributed through the park, located at key organizational areas that link visitors to park services. These areas include the Arboretum, South Entry, and Gardens. They are also areas of focus for the park’s future evolution. •
Hubs can range from visitor centers within an existing or new structure, to freestanding kiosks where information is distributed. They are located near other services such as restrooms and drinking fountains.
Hubs are intended to be used by visitors who seek information, and do not require interaction by all visitors.
Hubs are welcoming spaces which emulate the identity of the park and allow staff to make a personal connection with visitors.
