Home to 12 public parks and 30 miles of trails, Erie MetroParks provide opportunities for visitors and residents to enjoy and appreciate the public land in Erie County, Ohio.
Located in Osborn MetroPark is the Erie MetroParks Discovery Trail. The Discovery Trail is a first-of-its-kind, mile-long trail system featuring five play pods. These interactive pods are made up of larger-than-life play structures that mimic local wildlife and plant life.
As a conservation park district, Erie MetroParks ensures that natural resources are cared for by educating the public on the importance and unique qualities of the natural world around them. This makes the signage for the Discovery Trail just as important as the trail and play pods themselves. To carry out this mission of conservation, Erie MetroParks staff called on Pannier to bring their educational, interpretive, and wayfinding signs to life.
