Installation Instructions

The Parks Explorer app lives on the web, which means it doesn’t need to be downloaded from the app store. It can viewed on a desktop or tablet, and installation on any smart phone is quick and easy:

  1. Visit on your Apple or Android device
  2. When prompted to use current location, select Allow. This will enable the app to show parks closest to you and will activate the check-in features. (You'll need to ensure location services are enabled for Safari on an Apple device.)
  3. Next, you’ll see a prompt to Add to Home Screen. Follow the instructions here to bookmark the app on your phone.
  4. Click the icon. Scroll down and select Add to Home Screen. Click Add.
  5. The Park Explorer icon, featuring Milwaukee, will now be on your phone’s home screen.
