Park lighting design considerations

Effective park lighting design decisions need to take into account safety, security, and enhancement of the outdoor space. Park lighting and landscape lighting design is very similar to the design of the landscape itself: you must determine focal points, traffic patterns, specific use of each area, the mood and ambience you are trying to create, etc. You need to consider how the proposed lighting will enhance the form, colour, and texture of the soft and hard landscape elements. Lighting should serve to conceal what may be unattractive and enhance the view of your park at night.

Choice of lights is critical for park lighting

Are they weather proof and resistant to vandalism? The ongoing cost of maintenance and repairs needs to be taken into consideration when selecting park lights. There is little value in creating a well lit park that requires frequent and costly repairs to maintain it.

Illuminated steps, paths, vehicular traffic areas, and car parks can prevent after-dark accidents. Motion detectors can also be used to light up obscure spots when someone passes by.

Photocells automatically turn on fixtures at dusk and off at dawn, providing perfect timing for lights all year round and ensuring efficient power use.

Low voltage lights installed under handrails, stairs, and bench seating on decks help lighten things up for outdoor entertaining.

Stronger beams designed to shine over an outdoor activity area like a basketball court can be used to add extra hours of post-dusk fun.

Picnic and BBQ areas require adequate lighting to be functional outside of daylight hours this can be achieved with energy efficient LED lighting.

Pure white light creates a clean look, however, warm tones like yellow or red introduced properly can make the landscape come alive at night. Green lights can make foliage look even greener.
