#ParksRock Activity

General Information

Our #ParksRock Scavenger Hunt began Friday, July 24 and officially ended on Monday, August 24. Although the official hunt has ended, you can still participate in the fun! Search for painted rocks in our local parks with members of your household. You’re bound to have a rockin’ time!
