Missing key element to make useful

I downloaded this due to an upcoming visit by a pal with kids. I’m trying to help plan a great visit. While I can search by date, I have no way of knowing if the events are anywhere near me without clicking on each item of possible interest. There should be a way to easily identify future events within preferred locations (without having to know the names of the parks). This would increase the apps usability significantly and help expose people who don’t often use the parks to the wide offerings available. I hope this functionality is added soon.

Good start, needs some features

Overall this is very useful for finding events around town. There are a couple bugs that need to be worked out - often when you click on a park in the map the events don't show up. But the biggest feature I'd like to see in the future would be a 'My parks' section where I could save the parks near me that I visit and then filter results by that list instead of researching parks one at a time. It would also be nice to filter both by park and category at the same time.

Great app

This app is amazing at the summer time. Obviously Chicago wouldn’t have events at parks in the cold winter. Which is when the other reviewer was looking in this app
