Ways To Attract More Visitors to Your Public Park

This time of year, members of your community want to spend more time outdoors and in the sun. A local park is the perfect place to do this, but if you notice low foot traffic levels at your city park, there could be specific aspects keeping people away. To get more patrons interested in visiting, try some of these ways to attract more visitors to your public park.

Improve Park Aesthetics

The overall appearance of your park serves as the first impression to the average visitor. If your park doesn’t have a beautiful and inviting appearance upfront, you’ll have trouble attracting guests. Landscaping is a huge factor when it comes to keeping your park looking nice; consider hiring a professional landscaper if you don’t already use one. Professional landscapers can help maintain grass length, grow flowers and trees, and keep up the aesthetic value of your park.

Tackle Littering Issues

One major issue that can detract from your park’s aesthetic value is littering. Even if your park has the most beautiful landscapes, potential guests will first notice any litter that might be present. You can tackle littering in your outdoor space by organizing community cleanups, hiring a professional service, and more. You should also consider installing more municipal park trash cans to prevent littering in the future. Make sure you have sufficient garbage and recycling cans in high-traffic areas to support waste management needs.

Offer Park Amenities

Help your park become a more comfortable and entertaining place for visitors by offering more amenities, such as seating areas or playgrounds. To gather inspiration for your park, consider where you might be able to include amenities such as benches, picnic tables, pavilions, outdoor grills, playground equipment, walking paths, and more. From big additions to smaller ones, park amenities can go a long way toward attracting more patrons.

Schedule Community Events

A local park is the perfect place for bringing your community together for events. Help your community park achieve the reputation of being a spot that brings members together for fun local events like concerts, cookouts, community service events, and more. This is a fantastic way to bring more attention to your newly revamped park and build interest for many throughout your community.

A community park is the perfect place to bring people together, especially during the summer months. If you would love to see your municipal park become a warm and welcoming place, try implementing some of these tips for attracting more visitors to your public park. Soon, your park will be more beautiful and bustling than ever.

With the 2 October deadline for another extension quickly approaching, the Secretary-General strongly urges the Yemeni parties not only to renew but also to expand the truce’s terms and duration, in line with the proposal presented by the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy, Hans Grundberg. The truce, which first came into effect on 2 April 2022, has brought the longest period of relative calm to Yemen since the beginning of the war. UKRAINE The Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says that an attack left scores of civilians killed and injured in the outskirts of Zaporizhzhia, in the south of the country. The event took place earlier in the morning, when civilians lining up to cross to areas under Russian control were hit by shelling, according to humanitarian colleagues on the ground. MALI In Mali, the UN peacekeeping mission continues to support Malian authorities to bolster the capacity of its security forces to respond to threats, particularly in the Centre and North regions. The Mission has been supporting a training organized by the Ministry of Security and Civil Protection, which is responsible for the security of civil and judicial authorities throughout the country.

President Putin has announced the annexation of four regions of Ukraine that are controlled by Russian forces. It’s the biggest seizure of territory in Europe since the Second World War. The Russian leader’s declaration follows staged referendums in Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Luhansk and Donetsk, which were denounced as sham by the international community. President Putin warned the West he would protect the territory with all means at his disposal. In response Ukraine said its application to join the NATO western alliance should be accelerated. The United States announced new sanctions against Russia. Jane Hill presents BBC News at Ten reporting from Russia editor Steve Rosenberg in Moscow.

David Nash, 26, spoke to his local GP over the phone during Covid restrictions complaining of an ear infection. He was not given a face-to-face appointment despite four separate calls and died three weeks later.  His infection led to a fatal abscess on his brainstem. NHS England ruled that he should have been given a face-to-face appointment on one of the four consultations.  Chief Correspondent David Grossman heard the calls and seen documents relating the case including one where Nash told the nurse "every time my heart beats, I'm getting these pains."  This comes as both main Westminster parties have sought to address better access to GPs.

Related Videos On: Are labour unions making a comeback in North America?


Throughout the pandemic, North Americans have been rethinking their relationship with work. In fact, a recently released survey found that about a quarter of Canadians have taken on a new job in the past few months. Many more who have stayed at their post have begun thinking about ways to improve working conditions. And then there's workers at places like Starbucks and Apple, some of whom have sought to form unions or join unions. In Canada, three Starbucks in B.C. have voted to join the United Steelworkers Union, as has a café in Calgary. Five Lethbridge Starbucks locations are awaiting the results of similar votes. Meanwhile, unions have reported an increase in the number of calls from workers interested in joining a union, according to Canadian Labour Congress President Bea Bruske. “Those workers who are often service sector workers in restaurants, retail locations, have had to deal with the public, have not necessarily had access to personal protective equipment during the pandemic, have not had access to paid sick time. And quite frankly, their wages are not keeping up to inflation,” She explains. Alyssa Julie explains what’s behind workers’ renewed push to unionize their workplaces and whether it’s likely to lead to a stronger labour movement.

The world’s first in-person Global Black Pride (GBP) events were held in Toronto, exactly one month after Pride and overlapping with the city’s Caribbean Carnival. Founded in 2020, it is an event that brings together Black 2SLGBTQIA+ communities across all continents. One of these events was the Black Pride Kiki Ball, co-hosted by the City of Toronto with the Toronto Kiki Ballroom Alliance (TKBA). In Canada, ballroom culture has exploded in recent years. Founded in 2010 in Toronto by Legendary Twysted Miyake-Mugler and Legendary Vixen, TKBA is a space to nurture the needs of 2SLGBTQIA+ BIPOC youth facing barriers and trauma. Started in New York during the 1960s, ballroom spaces were created by the queer and trans Black and Latinx community due to discrimination and a need for a safer nightlife. A function that hosts multiple competitive categories, each event typically consists of a DJ, a commentator, a judges panel, ballroom walkers and spectators coming together to celebrate one another and compete. For the world’s first in-person GBP event, this global event celebrated the unique intersection of these diverse cultures, marking how far the movement has come over the course of 60 years. For those who may be hearing about it for the first time, what exactly is a ball and what does it mean for the community?

This is true in the 2SLGBTQQIA+ community as well. “I feel very isolated in a lot of those spaces because they’re not accessible,” disability awareness consultant Andrew Gurza tells Global News about hot spots in Toronto’s LGBTQ+ neighbourhood, “The Village.” “And if I can access the space a lot of the community doesn’t know how to receive me. Has never seen a disabled person like me in the space.” Global News’ Alyssa Julie spoke to two disabled people in the queer community, who said physical barriers aren’t the only hurdle they encounter.

Related Videos On: Bisexual erasure: What it is, and how it impacts mental health


Almost 500,000 people in Canada identify as bisexual, according to official data from Statistics Canada. However, although a growing portion of the Canadian population identifies as bisexual, those who come out as such are still met with denial, or their identities are questioned. This phenomenon is referred to as bisexual erasure.
