LiveWell Greenville Celebrates Successful First Annual Park Hop Campaign in 2013

PARK-HOPPER-stickerLivewell Greenville, with the help of our many partners, celebrated the close of the highly successful First Annual Park Hop Campaign.  Families joined LiveWell Greenville to celebrate with a closing celebration and Scavenger Hunt at Conestee Park.  Geoff Hart and JDew were on hand to host the event and hand out prizes.  To complete the onsite scavenger hunt at Conestee  Park, participants and their families were able to demo the prototype for the Park Hop phone app developed by local start up Gamemaster.

Park Hop was an exciting adventure designed to help Greenville County residents discover parks in their community in a  fun, cost effective way that encourages physical activity. Through this summer long journey we hoped to foster an awareness and appreciation for the wealth of parks and recreation facilities that Greenville County has to offer. Building upon the success of the 2013 Park Hop we hope to build on this event and establish an annual tradition for all to enjoy.

The Park Hop Scavenger Hunt featured parks from each of our park partners in the community, with a corresponding interactive clue to identify with the help of the Park Hop Passport and the Park Hop phone app.  Scavenger hunt participants visited each park and discover the answers to the scavenger hunt clues.  At the end of the summer participants submitted their answers to their clues for a chance to win fun adventure themed prizes such as a membership to the Greenville Zoo, water park passes, Park Hop t-shirts, or camping and adventure gear prize packs from REI.

Park Hop is excited to announce the launch of the Park Hop app for smart phones. The app, Questalot, was created by a local start up tech company, Gamemaster. Questalot presents users with an exciting opportunity to go on local “quests” including the Park Hop Scavenger Hunt, as well as the Conestee Park Scavenger Hunt that was used at the closing celebration.  While the Park Hop Campaign has closed for the season participants are still able to access the two scavenger hunts on Questalot year round.
