Jack London State Historic Park announces new digital tour
Jack London State Historic Park just announced an early launch of its new digital tour experience, which will officially be released this fall as part of a series developed by California State Parks and Timelooper Inc.
The digital tour, which can be downloaded to a mobile device, opens with a holographic image of Jack London, as he welcomes visitors and leads them through his beloved Beauty Ranch, allowing them to travel back in time in an interactive experience.
The virtual tour is comprised of ten different tour stops located throughout the park and combines elements like digital animation, holograms of Jack and Charmian London, historic photographs, 3D augmented reality models of the famous Wolf House, and more.
As the lead agency on this innovative project, the California State Parks team has crafted twelve similar tours for different parks throughout the state. Jack London’s will be the thirteenth in this series. The release of the series will happen this fall.
The free app, titled “Cal State Parks Adventurer,” is available from any app store and should be downloaded before arriving at the park. For more details, visit www.jacklondonpark. com.
Jack London State Historic Park, in the heart of Sonoma Valley, is operated and funded by Jack London Park Partners, one of the first non-profit organizations to be entrusted with management of a state park on behalf of the people of California. Funding to keep the park going strong is generated from visitors, annual passholders, and generous donors. Learn more about the park at jacklondonpark. com/.
