The latest information about Burlington County Parks events, activities, trails, and resources can now be accessed quickly at your fingertips on a new smartphone app.
The Burlington County Commissioners announced the launch of the new Burlington County Parks smartphone application today, saying it would provide residents and visitors with a convenient new method to locate a wealth of information about the County’s outstanding parks system.
“The Burlington County Parks System has more than 1,000 acres of developed parkland, over 50 miles of interconnected trails and multiple museums and art galleries. Each year, the system organizes and hosts thousands of activities, events and classes,” said Burlington County Commissioner Director Felicia Hopson. “Information about it all can now be found quicker and easier than ever with this new app. It’s a fast and easy way to connect with one of the best parks systems in the nation.”
Where to Download
The Parks App is free to download from the Apple and Google Play app stores or by visiting Burlington County Division of Parks and Recreation (NJ) App Store Links (myocv.com).
Among the information available on the app are maps and amenities at each of the County Parks. It also features details about the County’s regional trails, art galleries, museums, Fairgrounds, and Agricultural Center.
Parks Event Calendar
The Parks Event Calendar is posted and residents and visitors can use the app to register for any of the multitude of activities, programs and classes offered by the Parks System, including cooking and gardening classes, nature courses, yoga and line dancing, and tours of historic sites and buildings.
There’s also a news and alerts section so guests can remain up to date on all the latest developments involving County Parks, including special events, openings, postponements and other news.
The app was developed by the Parks System in partnership with TheGovApp.com, a brand of OCV LLC, which specializes in mobile app development for state, county and local government agencies across the country. The company helped develop apps for the Burlington County Health Department and the Burlington County Sheriff’s Office.
“Burlington County is full of history, natural beauty, and wildlife and our Burlington County Parks System provides destinations where people of all ages can enjoy these resources,” said Burlington County Commissioner Allison Eckel, the liaison to the Department of Resource Conservation and Parks. “This technology is another great resource for people to use to keep informed and learn more about our parks, museums and galleries and all the wonderful things they can do and experience by visiting them.”
