Data Toolbox: SF parks department rolls out mobile app


The San Francisco Recreation and Parks Department and mobile commerce company Appallicious hope to make finding nearby parks and amenities easier with an app that debuted this month.

The mobile app, called SFRECPARK, lets users locate nearby parks on a GPS enabled map and sort them by the features they offer, such as dog parks, athletic fields, pools and even restrooms.

Users can also make picnic reservations, sign up to volunteer and read park news.

The creators plan to roll out additional features including purchasing tickets to parks department events and attractions and going on walking tours by scanning QR codes on signs.

Appallicious founder Yo Yoshida is working with the city to amend existing law that will allow the parks department to make online transactions, according to a report in the San Francisco Examiner.

You can download the free app in the iTunes store here.

Check out screenshots of the app below.
