The next time you visit Kingwood Center Gardens, be sure to take your phone.
With the installation of 12 eBeacons throughout the gardens, you can now enjoy a curated experience as you walk the paths and visit the various buildings. The beacons are connected to the Kingwood Center Gardens App, which is available on both iTunes for iPhones and on the Google Play Store for Android.
With the App installed and activated, each eBeacon will provide content as you enter a specific area. Instant information will be provided, enabling visitors to enjoy an intimate and educational experience. Content has been written by Kingwood’s horticultural staff, some of it historical, some horticultural, and other parts just find.
Rewards are also a part of the experience, including rewards for downloading, birthdays, and purchases.
The first eBeacon greets visitors as they arrive in the parking lot off of Trimble Road.
The App itself includes “What Not To Miss,” which highlights currently blooming plants (as of this date, that would be Spanish Bluebell or Wood Hyacinth); “Say Hi,” which connects visitors to Kingwood staff; and “Share Your Story,” where you can relay your own tour experiences.
