Explore Jackson parks and trails with new interactive map

New Ella Sharp Park trail in Jackson

Jackson residents looking to get outside this fall have a new tool to help them navigate local parks and trails. The new City Parks and Trails Interactive Map is now available online by visiting cityofjackson.org/parks. 

By using the new web feature, residents can view an interactive map that displays all 28 City of Jackson public parks and four dedicated pedestrian trails. Selecting a park or trail on the map takes users to a profile for that location, which includes an address, photos, and description of what’s available to use there, such as a playground, pavilion or basketball court. 

This innovation was completed earlier this summer by City staff looking for a better way to direct residents to parks and trails. Before the new guide was available, residents had to sift through an outdated PDF file on the City website to learn about park offerings. 

Parks and Recreation Director Kelli Hoover says residents will benefit from this improved City service. “There’s no shortage of places in Jackson to exercise, enjoy nature and gather with the community, and this new map does an amazing job of showing all we have to offer,” Hoover said. “The pandemic has shown us that access to outdoor recreation is vital to community health. Anything we can do to improve that access is beneficial for everyone in Jackson.” 

The interactive map is part of a revamped Parks and Recreation section of cityofjackson.org, which features a new layout, photos of recent programs, and an updated park and trail listing.   

A video that explains how to navigate the new map is available on this page.
