Introducing QR Codes at Lake Metroparks

You've probably seen these little boxes appearing everywhere and may have wondered what they are.  These 'boxes' are called QR Codes that contain information or links that can be scanned by QR Code reading applications on smartphones (iPhone, Android, and Blackberry).  

There are numerous apps available on all smartphone platforms.  Once you have the app downloaded on your smartphone, simply launch it, center the image on your phone's screen and the app does the rest for you.

Lake Metroparks will place these codes on the park bulletin boards this week to allow visitors to scan and open the web page for that particular park.  The page provides the address, GPS coordinates, information about the park, and a link to the trail map, if applicable.
