Vancouver Parks app provides information on the parks available in the City of Vancouver, British Columbia. The app offers information on a wide range of activities available at each park.
The listings of all parks are organized by general location and name.
They are also graphically displayed on a map of the city.
Each individual listing includes address, location on a map, and any additional information such if the park allows unleashed dogs, etc.
As this is a new application any feedback and suggestions for improvements would be greatly appreciated. Please provide feedback and suggestions at Apps@SK8Wireless.com
This application is not affiliated with City of Vancouver or any other organization. The data included in this application was acquired through the City of Vancouver's Open Data initiative (http://data.vancouver.ca).
The description claims to include activity information but so far all I can find is where and when you can have your dog off leash and nothing else. What about playgrounds, sports fields, tennis courts, picnic areas, BBQ pits, etc., etc.
Every park has something different to offer and a couple of extreme examples would be Stanley Park and Queen Elizabeth Park. You should at least include links to a webview for websites with info on these areas that have astounding amenities. That would be the easiest way to handle that rather than collecting all the data yourself to include in a free app.
This app would be half decent if there were photos of the parks. Could you not use Google Maps Street View functionality to at least provide a peek at the park?
One last small suggestion would be a text search on the list of parks rather having to scroll through the whole list looking for a specific park.
There is a lot of potential for an app like this. You should consider getting a custom map done so you can charge for the app and make it worth your while to make this the app that it should be. I know that including Google Maps in a paid app costs $10000 so I appreciate your position but as it is, there's not much to warrant keeping this app on my phone.
I'm rooting for you and hope to see this turn into something awesome.
great site, nice to find all the parks near me
