A historic public park in the heart of the city, Cubbon Park is one of the most widely visited destinations in Bengaluru by tourist and local alike. The objective of the wayfinding project is to create a system of signage for the 197 acre site to make it easily navigable within and provide information to connect the park to the cultural assets all around.
What you can expect to find is comprehensive signage at each of the 7 gate of the park with an extensive map of the park and its assets/activities, informative signage near all the monuments and statues of historic value amongst many others. Aside from the first comprehensive map of the park, one of the highlights of the signage system is the bloom cycle, which showcases which trees are in bloom in what time of the year. The signage system has been organized following the principle of progressive disclosure, so as people move into the park, the information is unraveled accordingly.
