"Rhode Island is fortunate to have an abundance of easily accessible parks, beaches, campgrounds, management areas and bike paths where families can picnic, walk, bike, swim, camp or fish," said DEM Director Janet Coit. "These resources offer great opportunities for residents and visitors to get outdoors and enjoy nature, get fit and have fun. Take a moment to download this new app before you head out to one of Rhode Island's state recreational facilities for a day of exploration and enjoyment."
The interactive outdoor guide, created by ParksByNature NetworkTM in partnership with DEM's Division of Parks and Recreation, is the ultimate guide to exploring Rhode Island's state parks. Thanks to user comments and suggestions, the app has been totally revamped. Updates include:
The Pocket Ranger® mobile tour guide can be downloaded from the iTunes Store and Android's Market, or directly at PocketRanger.com. Additional details are available on DEM's parks website at www.riparks.com. For more information call DEM's Division of Parks and Recreation at 667-6200.
