The City of Duluth Parks and Recreation Department has a launched a new app that will make getting out to local parks even more fun for families.

The City of Duluth’s Parks and Recreation’s Agents of Discovery app allows park visitors to go on missions that are planned at different parks, trails, and events throughout the year. Playing detective with this new app will allow people to get outside and learn about our local parks as well as nature in general.

The City says that park missions will rotate monthly between different parks, trails and special event locations. The first mission, which is geared towards families with kids ages 6-14, will take place at Bayfront Park.
