The District of North Vancouver's parks can now fit in the palm of your hand.
The district launched a free parks app last Friday, giving Apple and Android users a scrollable map of all the district's green spaces.
DNV Parks allows users to find out which park is closest to their current location or to filter results based on desired features, such as tennis courts or water parks.
The app displays a map highlighting each of the district's 54 parks, and with a single click users can find out when the lights are turned off, which parks permit off-leash dogs, and other information.
App users can also create a personalized list of parks based on considerations such as hiking trails or picnic spots.
Users can download the app through the Apple App Store or Google Play.
