[ARCHIVED] City to Celebrate 'Kids to Parks Day' May 15

This year, Roanoke Parks and Recreation will celebrate National "Kids to Parks Day" with a scavenger hunt like no other! This hunt can be completed in any City of Roanoke playground on Saturday, May 15, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Not only will this have kids (and grown-ups!)  getting active, learning about their parks, and expressing their creativity, they’ll also have a chance to get a little silly and maybe even win some prizes! 

  • Using the Goosechase app, teams will have 12 hours to complete as many (or all!) of the missions in the hunt. The game runs from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday May 15.
  • Missions will require you to record a 30-second video or snap a photo using the app. This must be real-time! So, no screen-shots or uploads will be accepted. You can re-submit your entry as many times as you’d like, but whatever is there at 8 p.m. will be your submission for the game.
  • All missions are designed to be completed at a City of Roanoke playground. 
  • Get inspired and keep up with other teams across the City using the newsfeed on the app.

Click this link to learn more about this free day of play, and we hope to see everyone out there enjoying their parks!  If you have questions, please contact the Roanoke Parks and Recreation office at 853-2236 or send an email to [email protected].
