170 Berks County Parks on Your Phone

Outdoor Berks is a free app from the Reading Health System that lets you easily find parks and trails in Berks County. Use it when you want to hike, walk your dog, or just have a picnic. It's simple to use, free and very handy!

There's a filtering option where you can find a park with specific features. Check the features you want, choose parks and/or trails, and let the app display a list of all of them that match, with the closest ones first. Choose from features such as baseball/softball, basketball, disc golf, grills, handicapped access, hiking, lakes, parking, pavilions, pet-friendly, picnic tables, playground, pool, soccer/football, tennis, volleyball, walking/biking trails, and water features.

You can also use the map to find parks and trails. The map is super easy to use. You can zoom in/out and browse around, or use the arrow to let it find your current location and show you what's nearby. Clicking a pin on the map will bring up the address and a list of the location's features.
