No matter the park size, we have the right lighting solution.
Reliable lighting at parks and recreational spaces is essential to maintaining public safety and protecting individuals, especially once the sun sets. That is why a proper lighting design is important – to ensure all areas within a park, school grounds, walking trails, or similar spaces have functioning lights with appropriate spacing between in order to illuminate these parts of town and city communities. LightMart can help with LED lighting solutions and long lasting lighting equipment for commercial sized projects!

Frequently Asked Questions:
What are Some Best Practices for Lighting in Parks?
Creating effective lighting at parks can vary – depending on the park size, park type, or geographic area. Small, rural towns tend to have more open plots of land without lighting or parks that are tucked back further from street lighting compared to city parks – meaning a higher lumen light may be required to properly illuminate the park.
Playgrounds, for example, need reliable lighting to ensure the safety of kids at public parks once it's dark – whether it’s during the summer months when pre-teens and teenagers are spending time at the park at night, or during the fall and winter months when kids after school playtime aligns with an earlier nightfall.
Some lighting solutions that enhance the security and protection of kids at parks include LED flood lights, wall packs mounted to the side of community centers or school buildings, and security camera adaptable light poles where surveillance cameras can be mounted on top of the pole to ensure safety and monitoring the area.
How Many Lumens are Needed for Parks?
[Rob Photo Suggestion: Maybe a Photo like This https://www.fiverr.com/nelcaroco/calculate-street-lighting-design-using-dialux-or-dialux-evo that highlights the brightness and scope of light]
The lumens needed to brighten a park depends on the size of the area. For more localized areas of a park, such as playgrounds, officials suggest between 2-5 lumens to meet outdoor lighting standards. However, parking lots and walkways may require brightness levels between 11 lumens - 86 lumens.
What Types of Light Poles are Best for Recreational Spaces?
A typical park lighting design often includes recreational sports lighting and outdoor sports court lighting. Street basketball, for example, typically uses square steel light poles that are made of strong, durable material. A baseball or football field, on the other hand, should use high mast LED sports lights, which helps to distribute the light using a taller pole and a higher brightness output.
Other recreational areas include nature trails, walking trails, bike trails, picnic shelters, and recess areas or school yards. While the light pole quantity and length may differ from localized picnic areas compared to large open fields at public parks, steel light poles are still one of the top choices and can withstand strong winds – especially in coastal regions.
What Kind of Light Fixtures and Light Poles are Used at City Park Lights?
[Rob Photo Suggestion: if you have time, maybe use an aerial view of a public park’s layout with lighting labeled]
Urban spaces typically have city parks with a lot of trees and gardens – even conservatories. These public parks also have paved walking paths and trails for cyclists – often lined with decorative light poles and fixtures. LED bollard lights are another example of decorative but functional lighting, and are ideal for walking trails.
How to Establish Energy Efficient Public Park Lighting?
Installing lighting systems such as LED lights are beneficial for many reasons: they are low maintenance with fewer replacements required over the years, LEDs increase energy efficiency by cutting down on wasted light and lumen output which preserves energy usage; LED light bulbs also produce low levels of heat, they are damage and shatter resistant, plus they reduce overall monthly light bill costs!
