Park Spirit of Worcester Inc.
The Park Spirit organization developed a 14 mile urban hiking trail that incorporates 20 of Worcester’s green spaces. The trail, known as the East-West Trail, was hidden in the heart of Worcester and Park Spirit needed help in promoting and enhancing the experience for people hiking the trail. Consequently, the goal of this project was to identify whether and why people were using the East-West Trail through interviews, focus groups, surveys, and participatory research. We then created an application that would facilitate increased usage of the trail. Additionally, we developed a physical brochure for non-technical users and organized a promotional event on the trail.
