San Diego, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
County of San Diego Parks and Recreation announces they have joined GoStrive as their latest partner. The county served earlier this spring as a pilot organization for GoStrive, providing market research opportunities and focus groups to assist in product development. The County of San Diego is leading the West Coast in adoption of mobile technology for their programs, activities, and events. GoStrive, a Wisconsin-based startup company, provides mobile event and activity search to organizations like the County of San Diego, all around the nation.
County of San Diego selected GoStrive to bring better community awareness, participation and registration to its diverse portfolio of program offerings, from after school programs at the Rec Club to a few more surprising activities like dog obedience classes and pickleball. Community members in San Diego can now use the GoStrive mobile app to discover interesting events by category, facility, or by what their friends are signed up for. They can also invite friends and family to participate and share their events on Facebook and Twitter.
"We are excited to be leading the mobile movement in the parks and recreation industry by helping connect our community to recreation opportunities locally," said Brian Albright, County of San Diego Parks and Recreation Director of County Parks.
“Today GoStrive connects 3.2 million residents with the fantastic events the County of San Diego hosts each season,” said James Jackson, President and CEO of GoStrive “We’re pleased to partner with the County of San Diego Parks and Recreation as our pilot community to build awareness and participation in their programs. We look forward to working together to realize our shared mission of stronger engagement and healthier communities.”
The GoStrive app is now used by more than 160 agencies in 22 states. The County of San Diego Parks and Recreation is the first to adopt the mobile app in California. They lead the charge on the West Coast as GoStrive spreads to communities around the nation. GoStrive is the exclusive community engagement partner for the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA). The app is available for free download on iPhone and Android devices.
