Central Park is one of the main attraction of New York City. Central park isn’t like any other park it’s so intricate and hugenmous that you can get lost in it. And that may be a problem for many people. Say you do get lost in Central Park, and aren’t interested in stopping someone to ask for directions. Service is spotty, and you don’t know about Google Maps’ or its offline functionality. and you want to leave, but aren’t sure if you’re heading toward the Met or Strawberry Fields. What to do?  Or What should the park should provide?… During my observation there was always someone either circling where they came from or asking someone for direction, or using their phone to find their way. The question was asked to pedestrians ”  How often do you get lost” Many people response was ” everytime” They would end up back where they came from or they would discover a new place they never seen. Not saying that’s a bad thing but it’s frustrating that you get lost. For instance my team and I came up with the idea that the park lamp post should be numbered. For example  you should look at the base of one of the park’s 1,600 cast iron lamp posts, which are numbered with four-digit codes to help you locate where you are: The first two or three numbers tell you which street you’re closest to, while the last number indicates whether you’re closer to the East or West Side of the park—odd numbers mean you’re closer to the West Side, and even numbers mean you’re closer to the East Side. 7021? Close to 70th Street, on the West Side. 1102? 110th Street, East Side.  (School of Urban Construction, Jiangxi Normal University, 1 ) Shouldn’t this solve everyone’s problem for those who get lost?   Another concern is Safety . That’s the biggest issue in parks. Anything could happen in the park and you would want either witness, protection or footage. As i observed  there are no policemen or patrol officers in the park at all times. Which for a big park there should be. Going around and questioning a few people on ” Have there ever been a situation where you felt unsafe at the park, and what was the situation” many people said yes during the day and night. According to Rachal Some parks supporters want to use federal budget surpluses to aid the parks, including purchasing fragile, new parklands. But critics say the nation can’t afford any new parks, and that any budget surpluses should be used to protect Security. (cox 1) If you look at the  crime statistics, it can be misleading. Many crimes, particularly sexual assault, go unreported; and low crime statistics may in fact be influenced by people trying to avoidany type of areas they receive to be high risk.The design of a park or recreation area can have a direct impact on people’s perceptions of safety and their willingness to use a space. Designing a park for safety is based on what is generally considered to be what a good park is should be, it meets the needs of its users; it is diverse and interesting; it connects people with the place; and it provides people with a positive image and experience.My team and I thought would be a good idea that creates the should have effective control on the areas to consider when evaluating the safety  of the  park. There should be activities near the park area, beside the  entrance or along a main pedestrian path where it’s open to other people. Locate food concessions and vendors at the park edge that serves both the street and the park .Make sure that activities in the park include a  person presence from early morning to evening. Lastly Improved lighting and increasedgreater night time surveillance. Lastly The Central Park Zoo is one of the most favorite place every kid or adult loves to be if you’re a animal lover.Why do people go to the zoo? The simple answer is to see the animals. A common part of a child’s visit to the zoo involves running from exhibit to exhibit to observe the animals. But Feeding the animals Should not be Prohibited. It’s not safe for kids or adults to feed the wildlife in the zoo. There should be a sign that says ” NO FEEDING WILD ANIMALS”  right my each section in different language. So that many people can read and understand the sign. Study shows that when you feed wild animals (Hosley, 3/21/17) “Feeding wild animals doesn’t just cause them harm from ingesting things they shouldn’t, it also causes longer term damage that affects their behavior and could put them at risk.” Futhermore ( Barron 2)  states that ” It can be so poinsionous that it can cause the animals to see you as a threat” This can cause the animals to catch sick and die causing extinction. And then there won’t be enough animals in the zoo sooner or later if we don’t put a stop to it.In conclusion, Central park will be more attractive and useful after those several suggestions. Meanwhile, some taxpayers who live in this community will be arguing this project, because the budget of this program will be a huge number. However, they will accept the proposal when they realize the pollution of Central Park and the hidden safety issue of children’s recreation area are growing problems.
