Friends of Warner Parks has purchased the Hill Tract, a 324-acre property that's home to an old-growth forest of trees more than two centuries old.
Imagine an interactive guide for the Warner Parks that fits in the palm of your hand. You could check your location on a hiking trail, find the nearest bathroom, learn about flora and fauna around you, or find out about upcoming events. We are thrilled to announce that all this is now possible—thanks to the Warner Parks Natural Areas iPhone and Android apps!
Funded by Friends of Warner Parks, the Natural Areas app is available for free download from the iTunes App Store (See iTunes Preview) and Google Play (click HERE). The centerpiece of the Natural Areas app is an interactive map that can link with a smartphone’s internal GPS. The map highlights Warner Parks’ trails, roads and facilities, and can display your real-time location at any point within the Parks.
BDY Environmental, LLC built the app along with collaborative input from Metro Nashville Parks, the Warner Park Nature Center and Friends of Warner Parks. It is the first app of its kind for Metro Parks, designed to better connect people to the city’s open spaces. While this version of the application focuses on the Warner Parks, future versions will include similar information for the other Natural Area Parks within the Metro Parks system.
We hope you find this a helpful tool to enhance your Warner Parks experience!
