The Best Parks and Recreation Websites

In today's digital world, it's hard to get attention or visitors - even the real-world kind - if you don't have a good website. That's even true for individual parks and municipal Parks and Recreation Districts. While a park can exist without a website, it will get a lot more attention if it's easy to find on the web.

To help make the most of your spaces, virtually and in the real world, here are four things that make a great Parks and Recreation website:

#1: Photos and Amenities

Visitors don't just want to know where a park is, but also what it has to offer. Photos can convey an instant sense of the atmosphere, while lists of amenities can help searchers to find things like swimming pools, running trails, botanical gardens, and other desired features.

#2: A Calendar of Events

If you're park is home to races, festivals, and other public events, why not include these on your website to drum up interest. At a minimum, you'll make it easier for attendees to find the right times, addresses, and destinations.

#3: Registrations and Reservations

Many parks and recreation organizations offer classes, while others allow users to reserve gazebos and other spaces for picnics, weddings, and even business events. You consider adding an online reservation system that makes saving a space fast and convenient.

#4: Park Maps and Hours

Don't forget that some people may look up your park while they are on the go and searching for something to do. Including Park hours and rules on a mobile-friendly home will help bring in visitors on those sunny weekends.
