Recreational signs are informative signs whose function is to indicate to visitors or customers all spaces and areas that have a recreational or cultural interest. In a wildlife reserve, for example, they can indicate places where visitors can go camping, climbing, swimming, kayaking and so on. They can also serve as guideposts on hiking trails or guide the visitors by indicating areas where they will find animals. The recreation signs might sometimes indicate the type of animals that can be seen: deer, bears, birds, and so on.
On a large beach, they will indicate the areas where people can play and those where they can swim safely. In parks, amusement parks and fairgrounds, they will help visitors to easily find all major attractions. Thanks to these signs, you can easily find smoking areas, diving sites, showers and areas for horse riding or playgrounds. The recreation signs are even used to indicate the restaurant or catering areas. The design of the signs is substantially the same everywhere. They have a brown background with text or a white symbol. Their use is a necessity for parks, ski resorts, country parks, reserves and many others.
