Site Amenities

Public, open spaces are essential to any community to help solidify a healthy lifestyle and offer ways for residents to enjoy nature. Visitors and community members often frequent these areas to relax and savor the sunshine. Think about the last time you’ve visited a public space such as a park, museum, national monument, office or school campus.

Various types of outdoor furniture help to make these spaces more useful and pleasant for visitors. Convenient public structures enhance your outdoor experience and allow you to host certain special occasions or events, such as parties. With security products such as bollards, you will also feel safe and secure while doing activities outside. These resources additionally encourage a clean environment with concrete trash receptacles and ash urns. A community space that feels friendly, safe and inviting can promote social trust, positive feelings and overall satisfaction in the surrounding environment.

What Are Site Amenities?

Site amenities are structures or furniture pieces added to enhance a common area of a landscape that the public uses. They are most often placed in areas such as:

  • Parks.
  • Universities.
  • Businesses.
  • Outdoor community centers.
  • Restaurant patio dining areas.
  • Dog parks.
  • Sports and fitness facilities.
  • Libraries.
  • Museums.
  • National monuments.

Site amenities typically come in many shapes, sizes and colors and can be installed in commercial, industrial or residential areas, like apartment complexes. Local site amenities provide a welcoming environment and can encourage visitors to stay longer on your property to enjoy the outdoors. They also contribute to your property’s appearance and value and offer opportunities for people to socialize. Examples of on-site amenities include:

  • Park benches.
  • Bollards.
  • Planters.
  • Trash bins and receptacles.
  • Picnic tables.
  • Ash urns.

Without these types of amenities, you may see an increase in issues like litter accumulation, which can lead to a decrease in people’s desire to return to your area. Even smaller park site amenities, like trash containers, can be a simple gesture to show your visitors you care about the environment and want to provide them with suitable and practical ways to make their outdoor experience effortless.

Benefits of Site Amenity Design and Planning

Taking the time to properly consider how to improve your landscaping area reflects on your business and can make it look more attractive to visitors. The design, planning and implementation process of adding amenities to your public outdoor space is important for providing assistance to your community and supporting any accessibility needs for tourists and pedestrians. Local commercial site amenities offer functional structures for individuals to use and can benefit you and the residents even further by:

  • Making your space more usable.
  • Assisting in keeping your outside space clean.
  • Eliminating the need to implement structures at a later, more inconvenient time.
  • Creating a sense of community around your business.
  • Improving security.
  • Helping to delineate paths or outline secure areas.
  • Enhancing property value.
  • Highlighting natural, outdoor features.

Provide a Place for People to Sit With Concrete Tables and Benches

Provide a Place for People to Sit With Concrete Tables and Benches

Creating a well-designed and functional recreation area allows people to sit and enjoy lunch surrounded by beautiful planters filled with greenery — or take a break from their morning walk on a nearby bench. Nitterhouse concrete tables and benches are available in many different shapes and sizes for a modern or rustic look. These tables are beneficial for outdoor spaces because they won’t become easily weathered or blow away in extreme weather conditions.

We offer concrete materials such as traditional, precast and recycled concrete blocks that can endure years of outdoor use and secure the most value for your investment. Durable materials like these help you feel more confident that your property design will stay intact and last a long time. Some additional benefits of adding concrete structures to your property include the following:

  • They are typically very low maintenance.
  • They can hold a good amount of weight, perfect for families and groups of friends.
  • The weight of the concrete tables can deter chances of theft.
