City launches Parks Locator tool

Parks Locator tool

The City of Broken Arrow recently launched a new Parks Locator tool for residents and visitors to use. Using the new online tool, residents can find all relevant information about any City-owned park or recreation facility.

The tool works on both desktop computers and is mobile-friendly. Anyone using the locator can find parks by type of activity or facility offered or distance to their current location. Directions to a park are also just a click away.

“The Park Locator will help our citizens and visitors find Broken Arrow Parks quickly, directions to parks via Google Maps, and up to date amenities offered with pictures,” said Scott Esmond, director of Parks and Recreation. “Our goal is to improve customer service by providing accurate information that is readily accessible.”

The locator tool is part of a service called ArcGIS offered by Environmental Systems Research Institute (ESRI), with whom the City has contracted. The locator tool is just the public side of a great new resource for the Parks and Recreation Department.

The department can use other functionalities of ArcGIS to manage its assets in place at all the parks around the City and monitor their condition in real time, complete with images. An inventory of all benches, playgrounds, athletic fields and everything else maintained by the Parks and Recreation Department has already been created using ArcGIS. Even trees or groupings of trees are monitored with the system, which will help mitigate when disease or pests start affecting trees in a park.
