Burien Parks Challenging Local Families With Parks-Based Scavenger Hunt

Print This Post  Email This Post

July is ‘Park and Recreation Month,’ and with five weekends in it, the City of Burien is challenging families to get outside to celebrate and explore their own B-Town parks – with a Scavenger Hunt (PDF file)!

The Burien Community Center is challenging families to a scavenger hunt that spans 12 city parks, including Arbor Lake Park, Chelsea Park, Dottie Harper Park, Seahurst Park and more.

‘Rock Your Park’ is an entire month celebration of the parks and what they have to offer. Participants will discover random facts about each park with scavenger hunt questions like: What type of animal can you see on a daily basis at Hilltop Park and what is located under the slide at Southern Heights Park?

Families who complete the scavenger hunt can bring their completed form into the Burien Community Center or one of the Music in the Park events by Aug. 1 to enter to win prizes. The winners will be announced at the August Music in the Park events.

Burien Parks is also asking families to submit photos of families using the parks. The best photo will be awarded with a prize and used in displays and publicity.
