Cofield Community Center
The City of Borger has partnered with CivicRec to implement its parks and recreation management software solution. Available from CivicPlus, the same integrated technology platform for local government the City of Borger has been using for their new website since November 2018, the CivicRec cloud-based recreation management solution will allow citizens improved accessibility to parks and recreation facilities. This new platform provides citizens greater visibility into offered parks and recreation department activities, classes, sports, and youth leagues and more convenient online registration and payment. It will also allow citizens to search for and reserve community facilities, such as the Johnson Park Youth Center, Cofield, and Huber Park Gazebo, all conveniently online.
The CivicRec solution is designed to be intuitive to navigate and easy for citizens to use. It is mobile-friendly, allowing citizens to search for community activities and events, register, and remit payment even from a smartphone or tablet.
