It’s time for the Regional Parks Summer Adventure, a metro-wide, digital scavenger hunt using the GooseChase app!

Missions are listed alphabetically by the 10 regional park agencies and then separated by park. You can search for specific parks or agencies. Each mission also has a link to the park’s website for more information. Try to complete all the missions, or just check off a few!

You can play as a team on one phone, or use multiple phones to participate.

We hope you have a ton of fun playing and learn about some hidden gems of our regional parks system!
