New Orleans City Park is proud to announce its first mobile app to help facilitate safe outdoor wellness and recreation. This exciting new project is funded by the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation, and gives the Park an opportunity to engage more with Park users. To promote health and wellness in the Park, we have partnered with OuterSpatial, an app that’s free to download and easy to use as a guide to find all of your favorite City Park outdoor activities–trails, points of interest, outings and more.
The OuterSpatial app provides maps of Park trails and routes, and features other wellness and recreation information relevant to visitor needs, Trials are for multiple fitness levels. Routes are sorted by distance and duration set for walking and running. You can locate yourself on the map or help others find you, while you’re out on the trails, because the app works even when you are offline.
“With the help of this grant, City Park can allocate resources toward health and wellness as we adjust to a new normal of Covid-19 life. The Parks’s short-term goal is to open the line of communication between City Park and the community strictly about health and recreation through the app. The Park’s long-term goal is to use the information gathered to organize a scalable wellness program in the future and improve our trail systems throughout the Park,” says Liz Lowe, GIS Specialists for new Orleans City Park.
Explore the thirteen hundred acres of outdoor oasis and discover 24 miles of walking trails through our urban forest. Nature comforts and nature inspires. Get outside yourself. Get to City Park.
