Hey all,

I am looking to add a feature to our Park Locator web application that allow users to find the closest facility or amenity to their current or searched location.

For instance, if someone is looking for a tennis court that is closest to their house. Is there a widget that would help solve this?

I know the Near Me tool is helpful for this, but users will have to adjust the distance slider until a tennis court shows in the results - which may take several iterations. 

There is also the Find Nearest option within the Analyst widget, but it uses credits, which I am looking to avoid.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

I just use the Near Me widget and increase the "Set default buffer distance". They'll get multiple results, but they will get the nearest at the top of the list.

I use same as ChelseaRozek above. You will get more results but ultimately what you need will be there.
