Park District adds search tool to Web site

A park search tool available to the public on Rockford Park District’s web site,, makes it easy to quickly find locations of 20 types of amenities such as ball diamonds, soccer practice fields, playgrounds, grills, electricity, shelters, reservable areas and more.

The search feature will assist those looking for locations to hold many types of gatherings—large or small—as well as for general recreation options.

A complete list of parks is searchable by name, and provides cross-referenced information about features and amenities.

Printable park maps are also available through the system. To access the search tool on the District’s Web site, select Parks, then select Park Maps or Park Amenities from the menu.

The search tool uses information from the Winnebago County Geographic Information System (WinGIS).

For general Park District information, including reservations for shelters and reservable areas in parks, call 987-8800 (TTY, 963-DEAF).

For information about accessible features and adapted recreational equipment and programs for people with disabilities, call 987-1600 (voice/TTY).
