Louisville Metro Parks and Recreation releases new mobile app

April 28, 2017

A new mobile application that allows users to locate the nearest park or community center and make a tee time at any Metro Parks and Recreation golf course is now available for Apple and Android devices free of charge in the app store.

In addition to the GPS-enabled mapping and tee time technology, the app provides a comprehensive calendar of programs and events, information on athletic leagues and schedules, information about shelter and pavilion rentals, links to social media and more.

Users can find it in the app store by searching “Louisville Metro Parks and Rec.”

“We all know that a great parks system enhances the quality of life for all citizens. And this app will help enhance the park-use experience. So go to the app store, get the Louisville Metro Parks and Recreation app, and get yourself to a park,” Mayor Greg Fischer said.

“We’re pleased to present this new app to the community,” Parks and Recreation Director Seve Ghose said. “It’s a great way to keep up with all the fun activities and events going on this summer throughout our nationally-accredited parks and recreation department.”
