The Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation has launched a new and improved world-class website that is dynamic, mobile and user friendly. The new website provides a wealth of information to the public in a way that is both easily accessible and aesthetically pleasing.
The development of the website was inclusive of parks managers and patrons alike, and it was developed to be relevant to all age groups. This collaborative effort resulted in a Parks.lacounty.gov website that stands out as an effective tool to finding parks, programs and all the details patrons need to plan their fun experience at 182 beautiful county parks!
“We encourage everyone to visit our website and see for themselves how much it has improved,” said John Wicker, director of the Department of Parks and Recreation. “The new website is full of impressive features, and is an efficient way by which people of all ages can find out what we’re offering in terms of parks, programming and events in their communities and countywide.”
The new website boasts a user interface that is much more appealing, interactive and rich in multimedia. It represents all that the department has to offer residents of Los Angeles County and beyond.
Among other things, visitors to the new website can easily find a park, register for aquatic activities, read the department’s eBrochure, find a trail, get caught up on park news and announcements, scope out events, and see what else is new as it relates to parks and recreation countywide.
“Developing this website was an amazing journey documenting and showcasing all of the great experiences we provide at our parks,” said Mohammed Al Rawi, the department’s Chief Information Officer.
“From a technology standpoint, this new website was implemented using the latest cutting-edge web technologies that will ensure a good user experience from any device, anywhere. This is a better representation of what the county’s parks, trails and venues have to offer.”
