Is seating facility to attract tourists?

Tourist Geoff Pullan got a “pleasant surprise” when he spotted this sofa next to a bench in a park in Marlow. He wonders if they could also be introduced to parks in his hometown in Durban, South Africa.

I have recently returned from a trip to the UK, and was pleasantly surprised to see the citizens of Marlow provide both the traditional park bench and a more comfortable sofa.

I would be interested to know if this facility is attracting more tourists! Our tourism officials would be pleased to know if they should consider a similar intervention in our own parks.

Tourism is so competitive these days, that we all need to find that ‘edge’. Marlow seems to be a leader, and is not taking a back seat.
