Grand Entrance for Ponca State Park


studioINSITE led a charrette with NE State Parks with the objective of creating a grand entrance for the park.  The new entry would orient visitors to the park by providing historic, geologic and natural resource information.  Our team developed concepts that would make these elements playful and artistic - a welcoming invitation to engage visitors.

Additionally our team explored ideas to partner with the City of Ponca to create a series of wayfinding elements that would connect the park to the City.

Following the charrette, a public open house was held to present the ideas generated and to gather feedback.
