Families in Buckinghamshire are being invited to explore the great outdoors right here on their doorstep, using a new fun and simple interactive mobile app. The Love Exploring app is completely free and gives users access to a range of games to play and activities to do throughout the year, when visiting parks and open spaces around the county.
Love Exploring encourages communities to explore their local area, parks and green spaces more through walking. The app creates bespoke activities to bring audio mindfulness guides and augmented reality games such as Dinosaur Safari, to local areas. The app is free and invites users to play games and take part in guided trails which include quizzes to get them hunting for clues as they explore the place they are visiting.
The app has multiple benefits and specifically aims to:
- Motivate residents to become more active
- Increase usage of our wonderful local parks and green spaces
- Deter crime and anti-social behaviour and increase the confidence of park users.
Angela Macpherson, Buckinghamshire Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing said: “With the summer holidays on the horizon, now is the perfect time for families to download our Love Exploring app and discover the fun that can be had in our parks and open spaces, all for free. It’s not just families who can benefit, anyone can download the app and get exploring. There are activities for all ages and by taking part you can increase your activity levels without even realising it. So, what are you waiting for? Download the app today and get exploring!”
