Physical and Visual Connections
Physical and visual connections can provide natural wayfinding. For example, view corridors through parks, between buildings and along roadways can direct pedestrians to destinations such as shorelines and cultural attractions. Consistent vegetation and unique pavement times can provide visual indicators of routes and destinations for pedestrians. Visual connections to places like parks or plazas are important because they allow people to see what is going on inside the space before they enter providing an enhanced feeling of personal security and making the space more inviting to pedestrians.
