APPS TO HELP YOU EXPLORE THE PARK
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 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. Trails 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.
Download the OuterSpacial app for Apple or Android.
