What can a city do to boost gamification?

I was approached by a city council member of a small city in Estonia with an idea of having a city adventure game to attract tourists. An initial idea was to provide their own app, then use a platform. We ended up agreeing that it is best to focus on infrastructure and let private entrepreneurs take care of the games.  Here are the main focus areas that a city can provide to boost touristic games.

1. Pedestrian focus
Does your city have areas that are only for pedestrians, or at least pedestrians focus with ample room to walk and the car traffic is slowed down? This is probably the most important aspect of the city adventure. If the game area has narrow walks and fast moving traffic then this is dangerous and not a fun place to be. We see that hazards coming from traffic are number one risk the game creators need to communicate. If the sidewalks are narrow and crowded then adding players to the mix will not fare good. It seems that many cities are working towards suppressing traffic in city centers, so this will open up new areas for games.
