New signs help folks get around downtown Boca


Staff report

Looking for how to get around downtown Boca? There are new signs that will help visitors navigate their way through the downtown district.

New wayfinding signs were recently installed throughout the downtown.

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 signs are 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.” Downtown Manager Ruby Childers said.

Six wayfinding signs have been installed along City maintained streets, including Palmetto Park Road and Mizner Boulevard. An additional six 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.
