Why Wi-Fi in the parks?
Fiber is being extended to several city park buildings to provide security cameras and to allow remote locking and unlocking of bathroom facilities at park buildings. The security cameras are useful in dealing with issues of vandalism and dumping while the ability to make park restrooms available in an efficient way makes the parks more usable.
Wi-Fi is very inexpensive to add once the fiber extension/connection is made, and makes our community and our parks more attractive for casual users as well as those who rent park shelters. Additionally, it fits the City Council’s goals of making St. Louis Park a technology-connected community and of advancing racial equity by providing free, public Wi-Fi access in as many public locations as possible for all residents and visitors.
