Pokemon Discussion Forum

Pokemon players are wandering around looking at the screens of their smartphones everywhere...our city streets, shopping areas and of course the biggest concentration in our parks!  

Does the recent Pokemon craze parks have you trying to figure out how to handle the situation? APRA Vice President Rod Buchanan from the Town of Gilbert Parks and Recreation Department will be leading a round table discussion on the impact, opportunities and best practices on this new phenomenon.

Recorded on October 14, 2016 


Additional Materials related to the discussion:

“Can PokéStops and Gyms be in unsafe areas?
PokéStops and Gyms are created from historical sites, public artwork, and user-designated locations. They exist in many places, including trails, parks, and urban areas. The safety of any given area depends on the user, the time of day, and many other factors. We encourage users to use their own judgment about which parts of the city or countryside they feel safe going to at various times of day or night. Concerns that a PokéStop or Gym is located in an inappropriate location can be reported through this form.
