Way-finding and information signage at Cubbon Park, at Bengaluru by Sensing Local 1

The project is a bi-lingual signage system in Cubbon Park, Bengaluru, conceived to ease navigation and showcase its history, culture and biodiversity. Cubbon park spans 197 acres and is the second-largest park in the city with close to 150 years of history. It was known as the ‘People’s Park’, and it stays true to that title till today. The project was created in 2018 in collaboration with Native Place, Bengaluru. It has materialised through the support of the Karnataka Tourism department since this park is one of the most popular destinations for city residents and visitors alike. Moreover, Cubbon Park is also at the center of a larger cultural district surrounded by the highest density of museums, shopping streets, other public parks like Freedom Park, and historical areas, including the old Pete area. Hence, it serves as an entry point to the myriad of these cultural destinations in the neighborhood that are within walkable distance. Overall the signage covered the information about the historical and cultural significance of the park, the monuments, and statues, along with providing directional and navigation information. A unique feature was the bloom cycle for the park, where the signage shows which trees flower in different seasons. The signage information was created by aggregating cartographic layers from primary and secondary sources, archival texts from state libraries, and three rigorous participatory processes.
