More About Recreation
There are many online resources for those interested in access to the outdoors in San Diego County. Here are a selected set of web sites for more information on the recreational activities referenced in Get Outside San Diego. Individual agencies often have very good information as well, for their jurisdictions.
Parks GIS data
The parks GIS data used in this application is from the California Protected Areas Database (CPAD), a project of GreenInfo Network. Learn more about CPAD and download data ››
Additional data was developed by GreenInfo Network for the recreational activities attached to each park, and for additional information shown on the map. This data is not currently available for download.

Get Outside Toolkit – for Public Parks Agencies
If you’re a local parks agency looking to make your recreational activities and parks available to smartphone users, GreenInfo’s Get Outside Toolkit can help you. The toolkit is an open source application that lets you easily upload your parks data and events calendar and automatically formats that data into a well-designed mobile application (it also works on desktop computers).

Statewide Parks Needs
ParksforCalifornia.org presents information on the California State Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), prepared by the Calif. Dept. of Parks and Recreation. GreenInfo Network assisted with this project and developed the ParksforCalifornia.org website as well as producing the associated SCORP report. You can create reports for cities, counties or legislative districts showing the status of who has parks nearby (www.ParksforCalifornia.org/tools) and you can browse success stories of how local agencies are meeting park needs (www.ParksforCalifornia.org/stories).
