Last summer, we didn’t let the threat of rain stop us from having our closing Park Hop Celebration! Over 500 people came out for a fun afternoon in the park. We played games with Mobi-Rec, danced with Reedy, visited Princess Ariel, and picked up some awesome prizes for participating in Park Hop! This year, the Park Hop Closing Celebration will be on August 9th from 4-7pm at Legacy Park (336 Rocky Slope Rd, Greenville, SC 29607).
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 tickets, and a Park Hop t-shirt by visiting parks!
Hey! We are launching Park Hop year round starting mid-September. Check it out over here!
GET THE MOBILE APP
The mobile version of the Park Hop scavenger hunt is housed under the iOnGreenville mobile app. Once you have downloaded the mobile app, you will be prompted to register for the scavenger hunt.
On May 19th, the Park Hop locations and clues will be opened. Click on the ‘Clues’ button in the app to discover the list of parks in the scavenger hunt this year. Use the ‘get directions’ button if you need directions to each park.
Clues unlock when you are at the park location. You will receive a confirmation before you submit each answer. When your answers are submitted you will see a green check mark appear.

Click below to download previous Park Hop passports if you are looking to repeat the adventure or would like some additional parks to visit.
Please be mindful that some clues were specific to that summer and no prizes will be given away for completing previous Park Hop passports.
We have a new creation this year that’s great for rainy days or a break from the sun when visiting the parks. Download and print the Park Hop Coloring Sheet!!
Park Hop Adventures combine clues from 2017 Park Hop with nature exploration. These adventures were created with groups in mind but anyone is welcome to download the PDFs and enjoy the activities.
To print choose double sided and flip on short end. This is a colorful brochure so feel free to print in black and white.
Please note: answers to the clues must be completed on the Park Hop Passport or through the iOnGreenville app to be counted toward prizes.

Every child who visits at least 10 parks will receive a Park Hop t-shirt.
Every child who visits 15 parks will receive a voucher to a Greenville Drive game.
Every Park Hopper visiting 15 or more parks will get their name submitted for the grand prize drawing! In past years, prizes have included a camping weekend at Paris Mountain, camping gear, passes to events at Roper Mountain Science Center, bicycles, and more.

Earned prizes are given away at the Park Hop Celebration on August 9th at Legacy Park. If you cannot be present for the Celebration but earned prizes based on visiting 5, 10, or 15 parks, we will set up two prize pick-up days at a local community center in August.
