Wayfinding Signage Debuts in Downtown Boca

 Wayfinding Signage Debuts in Downtown Boca

Boca Raton, FL – New in-ground wayfinding signs have recently debuted in Downtown Boca. The signs work as an information system designed to guide visitors through the downtown district, directing them to the area’s main destinations and attractions, and enhancing their experience while visiting Downtown Boca.

Each wayfinding sign features three Downtown Boca destinations, along with directional arrows pointing the way to each. Among the points of interest featured on the signs are, Mizner Park, Royal Palm Place, City Hall, Visitor’s Center, the Downtown Library, Parks and others.

The vibrant colors and design of the wayfinding signs are visually pleasing, easy to understand and reinforce Downtown Boca’s branding. Each sign measures approximately 4 feet wide by 5 feet tall, making them an effective directional tool for both vehicles and pedestrians. 

“The new wayfinding signs not only guide people to shopping, recreation, museums and more, they also educate new visitors on the array of engaging downtown attractions that are worth a visit, attractions they may not have known about otherwise.” says Downtown Manager Ruby Childers.

Six wayfinding signs have been installed along City maintained streets, including Palmetto Park Road and Mizner Boulevard. An additional 6 signs will be placed along Dixie and Federal Highways, upon final issuance of required permits.

The current wayfinding signs follow a series of directional pavement signs that were installed in the spring of 2019.  The final phase of Downtown Boca’s broader direction system will be gateway signs, welcoming visitors at the four main entrances to the downtown district, scheduled to begin fourth quarter of 2020.
