Signage is a often used media in providing information to park visitors. This study evaluated the visitors at Claude Moore Park in Sterling, VA regarding their interest in the signage currently in the park and their suggestions for improvements that they would like to see. The information was also used to provide input on technological improvements proposed by the park itself. It was found that signage in the park was looked for by almost all visitors who entered the park. Locational information was found to be the most sought after, followed by general and interpretive information. It was also discovered that while there is interest in technological accompaniments, most people prefer signs with photos and text. It was further determined that the signs in Claude Moore Park are not up to standards of visitors and are due for improvements.
