Looking up City recreation programs is now easier than ever. The City’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department has launched a new mobile application for all community members and visitors to enjoy.

The “Evanston Rec” app connects mobile users with City programs, facilities and events, providing instant access to information and services. It also serves as a tool for visitors looking for something to do around town.

The free, high-functioning app allows users to search for nearby facilities, parks and beaches based on their GPS location, view and save upcoming recreational events on their personal calendars, and access general department information. The app also sends notifications to users regarding the latest updates on beach and field conditions, camp registration dates, upcoming events and more.

The app is currently available for download from the App Store and Google Play, for iPhone and Android users.
