Bloomington visitors can access information about parks and trails easily from their mobile devices using the OuterSpatial platform. Bloomington Parks and Recreation's mobile application is free and available for both Apple and Android mobile devices. The app includes offline mapping and navigation - and access continues even without a cell phone signal.

Visitors can use the app to:

  • plan a visit to a park or trail and make the most of a visit once there
  • navigate while on trails
  • discover new places
  • locate parking, restrooms, picnic areas and other park amenities
  • access information about ecological, geological and historical points of interest
  • receive notifications about hazards, closures and other timely information
  • follow outings curated by Bloomington Parks and Recreation staff
  • share experiences and photos and connect with others who love city parks and trails
  • tell Bloomington Parks and Recreation about maintenance and other issues

The mobile app is a one-stop tool users can rely on for accurate, up-to-date information on trails and recreation information throughout the City of Bloomington.
