Lost in Paradise? Survey Results on Parkway Signage
In August, we asked your opinions on signage on and around the American River Parkway. The TMA, in partnership with State Parks, County Regional Parks, the City of Rancho Cordova and the City of Folsom, is exploring the value of added way-finding signage to, from and along the Parkway.
96 people weighed in on how to make the Parkway safer, easier to use and more enjoyable. And, while the survey's focus was on infrastructure, the participants broaden the focus with comments on enforcement, illegal camping, and parkway users not respecting the signs that are already in place.
Highlights of the survey results:
65% said more signage along the Parkway would be helpful
37% said wayfinding signage would make the parkway safer
16% want more information at intersections
28% want more information on trail conditions and closures
26% use Google Maps to determine their Parkway ride
