A New Way to Discover Cascades Park
April 17, 2014
Google Tour Takes You Step-by-Step Through the 24-acre Park - Starting today, you can trek through Cascades Park virtually. DiscoverCascades.com now features a Google virtual walking tour. This interactive tour provides website visitors with a panoramic view of the many attractions and amenities that Cascades Park has to offer.
"The virtual walking tour for Cascades Park is the largest in Tallahassee," said Steven Saccio, Google certified photographer. "There are so many things to see and do in the park and we wanted to capture them all."
More than 150 panoramic images make up the virtual walking tour. Viewers can access the tour using a desktop computer or a mobile device. The tour is easy to navigate and allows viewers to use a compass and arrows to select which portions of the park they would like to see.
Cascades Park, which officially opened last month and is operated by the City of Tallahassee, features a children's play area, an interactive fountain, miles of multi-use trails and a state-of-the art amphitheater. This unique urban park also doubles as a sophisticated storm water management system.
The park was constructed by Blueprint 2000, an intergovernmental agency funded by a one-cent sales tax and governed by both the City of Tallahassee and Leon County. Cascades Park is the perfect example of how tax dollars are reinvested into the community, enhancing the quality of life for everyone.
