“The new mobile app provides users with the ability to easily access park information and navigation at their fingertips. The app is another resource for visitors to use in helping to guide them with planning and improving their visit,” said Jaime Yohman, Mill Creek MetroParks Community Engagement Director. “It’s a tool users can also rely on while in the park for accurate, up-to-date information on trails, closures, and recreation information throughout the MetroParks.”
