National Kids to Park Day - May 21st at 9am

Kids to Parks Day is a national day of outdoor play celebrated annually on the third Saturday of May. The day connects kids and families with their local, state, and national parks and public lands through thousands of park events that promote discovery and exploration in the great outdoors.

Join us at Wildwood Park for this celebration and discover the park by going on a scavenger hunt. The first 100 participants will receive a t-shirt once they have completed the hunt at Wildwood. This is a free event pre-registration is encouraged.

At 9am you will check in with GRPD staff to get your scavenger hunt guide. You will need to bring a pen/pencil, something to write on, water bottle, bug spray, etc. After you check in you will set off to see if you can find all the items in the park. The hunt should take about 45minutes to an hour. Once you have found and recorded all the items come back to the check in location and grab your event shirt. (Shirts will be given to kids only) As always feel free to stay at the park and enjoy all that it has to offer.
