The value it provides to residents
The print and online recreation guides provide courses listed by subject, along with the name of the facilities where they are offered, but no easy way to tell where that facility is. This app saves residents time when trying to find a course to take that is located conveniently for them, and can help people discover facilities they didn't even know existed.
