Urban Greenway

The new Urban Greenway sign stands proud at the entrance to the scenic walking trail, located at Mitchell Ave. and Reserve Rd. The old sign, installed in 1995, had deteriorated beyond repair and the new one was recently installed in January of this year. The 3-dimensional sign was redesigned with a more durable aluminum frame backing (minimum 25 percent recycled content) and the actual sign is made of high-density urethane board with a minimum 15 percent post-consumer content or recovered materials content. The HDU is water and rot-proof and is painted with a durable, commercial-grade automotive-quality topcoat, making it resistant to discoloration, fading, peeling and cracking when exposed to the unpredictable Oklahoma weather. The brilliant colors were intended to invite trail-goers into Tinker’s refreshing green space network. The white birds are Great Egrets, a common large wading bird native to Oklahoma. The sign is expected to last about 40 years with proper care. (Air Force photo by Kelly White)
