Problem Solver Questions & Answers

Create a Unique Park


You can make a big impression on park visitors when you provide aesthetically pleasing amenities like shelters and gazebos. Manufacturers are constantly innovating, so you have an impressive selection of standard options to choose from that will really stand out.

Q: We are currently designing a park, and we'd like to find unique shelters that are simple to set up and that fit well into the surroundings. What should we consider?

A: When you want to make an impression on park visitors, you should select pavilions, shelters and other structures that fit in well with the surroundings, as well as the other amenities you are providing. Choose a design theme that features colors, materials and a design that all work together, while also working with the look of your site.

To simplify installation, look for premanufactured shelters. You'll be surprised by how many options are available straight from a manufacturer's catalog that will meet your needs. What's more, for many of these choices, customization is simple, with the ability to choose colors, shapes, materials and more.

Q: We would like to install shelters that are truly unique and eye-catching. What should we look for?

A: Ask your manufacturer to help you narrow down your options. In addition to a wide range of standard shelter and structure designs, you'll find unique and interesting options that go beyond the ordinary.

For sites that present captivating vistas, consider a two-story shelter. Two-story shelters are a truly unique option, and can be built into a sloped berm with a catwalk to provide accessibility to the upper level, or they can be built as stand-alone shelters with stairs leading to the beautiful views on the second level.

Or, for aesthetic appeal, shelters designed in the Craftsman style feature beautiful architectural details, making an impression while being simple to install.
