ParkWatchReport allows users to report incidents and issues in participating recreation areas, parks and trails, as well as view maps, explore trails, keep up with news, receive alerts and find events.
ParkWatchReport is used by land managers, park managers, rangers, and park districts to receive reports from the public and follow up with a task management system for managing staff, vendors, and volunteers and coordinate with adjacent jurisdictions.
California State Parks has given the ParkWatchReport.com the go ahead to allow any of California’s state parks to pilot the ParkWatchReport platform. By using this site, a convenient method is provided for the public to provide input to the California State Park system. The State Park management and it’s ranger’s are provided tools to manage the input and to track the reports and followup plans.
By using the ParkWatchReport.com platform, your reports receive the maximum visibility that your input deserves.
ParkWatchReport is a website and mobile app for iOS and Android that provides a simple way for park users to communicate wit…h land managers and for land managers to manage people and tasks within a park system.
We include a publishing platform for place information, including maps, news, events and alerts.
When a user visiting a park sees a problem, from inappropriate use of park trails or facilities, to maintenance issues like trees blocking trails, erosion, sign damage, evidence of illegal camping. This creates a permanent record of the event and an action item for land managers.
When a user sees an issue, they can specify a map location, provide photos and descriptions, as well as their contact information for followup. When incoming Reports are viewed by rangers or other administrative staff, they can be assigned to other staff members, specific tasks can be created and tracked and staff, vendors or volunteers can be deployed in a timely manner.
It’s all in our mission of “Keeping the Trails Friendly”.
