Park Hop Summer Scavenger Hunt

Park Hop NEW LOGO

Park Hop is a free, summer-long scavenger hunt in parks across Greenville County. This scavenger hunt encourages children and families to discover featured parks throughout the summer while searching for answers to clues within each park. Participants earn prizes like a LiveWell Greenville swag bag, water park passes, Greenville Drive vouchers, and a Park Hop t-shirt by visiting parks!

Celebrating Park Hop

Park Hop clues open May 19th, 2017. Save the date for the Park Hop Celebration on August 10th where Park Hoppers pick up their prizes.

This Celebration is free and open to all, regardless of their participation in Park Hop.

This year we are trying something a little different. Instead of an Opening Celebration we are having a Photo Contest. The contest starts on May 19 and runs until May 31.

Park Hop Photo Contest

  • Take a picture of yourself, a friend or family member participating in Park Hop
  • Use the hashtag #ParkHopFever on Facebook and/or Instagram (to ensure that we see your post, please make sure your account is not private)
  • With each post, your name will be entered for a prize
  • Wear a Park Hop t-shirt in the post and your name will be entered twice

August 10 from 4-7 pm at Mauldin Cultural Center Park

This is the time to recognize all of the Park Hoppers and hand out the earned prizes for participating in the Park Hop. Children who visited 15 or more parks are eligible to win grand prizes too! You must be present to win the grand prizes.

The celebration is free and open to all, regardless of their participation in Park Hop.

HOW TO SUBMIT PAPER PASSPORT

Write out the answers to the clues as you visit the parks. For the printable passport, you can submit your answers in two ways:

  • 1) Complete the Passport survey when you have completed your Park Hop. Wait until you have completed all the clues you want and complete the survey to submit your final answers. It is the exact same questions as the passport, so you just write your answers in! If you complete ONE survey, you can credit those answers to multiple children that have participated. The survey link will be posted soon.
  • 2) Mail your passport to LiveWell Greenville, P.O. Box 2284, Greenville, SC 29602
