Why Spray Parks Are The Place To Be This Summer
Building a neighborhood or community park is exciting. You get to think about all the ways people will gather and have fun in your space, whether for recreational activities like field games, gathering for a picnic, or simply taking a nice walk. Some elements you may want to consider before making any grand plans are your park’s site amenities — most notably, park bike racks!
Many people probably picture one thing when imagining a bike rack — a U-shaped or curved rack you lie your bike against to lock it up. But there are so many different designs available for your park’s bike rack. Let’s take a look at some.
Commercial bike racks are typically designed for commercial and urban use — think retail centers, college campuses, hospitals, corporate campuses, and neighborhood or community parks. They’re secure, durable, convenient to use, and can be anything from a standard look to custom and modern. Some examples of commercial bike racks include:
Outdoor bike racks sound just like what they are — bike racks intended to be used outside, whether in a large, commercial area such as a vast community park or a smaller outdoor space, like an apartment complex’s park. They are also easy to use, secure, durable in any environment, and look great! Some examples of outdoor bike racks include:
Park bike racks don’t necessarily always have to be outside!

A bike rack — no matter what kind — is an essential for your park. People often ride their bikes to the park and need a safe place to store them while utilizing the rest of the park’s amenities. If they can’t find a bike rack, they may lock their bike to a tree or another makeshift spot which can become a safety hazard if it’s in a highly-trafficked area. They may also leave their bikes unlocked or on the ground, which is also unsafe and not wise for the rider. Other reasons to have bike racks in your park include:
