Summer Scavenger Hunt


Celebrate the benefits of JPRD all summer long with our Scavenger Hunt!


Beginning on May 31, we will post a clue each week on social media and the JPRD website. Use the clue to find the Clue Marker at a JPRD location and win prizes! Clues will be posted each Friday morning.  Grab your family, go on an outing around town, and find the clue marker together!  Once you find the selected location, snap a picture with the clue marker and post on social media (make sure to tag JPRD).


Don’t have social media? No problem, emailthe picture to office@jamestownparksandrec.com or stop by the parks office during the week to show off your picture!


Pictures need to be posted by August 11th. Each entry will be eligible for prizes.  Find multiple clues and be entered multiple times! Each clue marker will stay in the location all summer – so if you miss a week you can go back and still find it!  Happy Hunting!


May 31st Clue:

Summer is in full swing! Take a drive and start our summer scavenger hunt. Remember it is ok if you’re not on course. Just short of Pro you will find the 1st sign. Now get out there and go fore it!


June 7th Clue:

Sign #2 is where all of this will soon look new.  80+ years down to the ground but back from the ashes anew because there is no place like home for everyone to enjoy peanuts and crackerjacks.


June 14th Clue:

Rally to find sign #3 in an area that you may hear best out of 3. This space got a new look lat year and lots of love starts here. An eye to the air you will spot yellow fuzzy spheres in either singles or pairs.


June 21st Clue:

Sign #4 is in a place children adore, I am where laughter meets spray, a place to cool on a sunny day. Kids run wild, splashing free.  Find me where water is the key!


June 28th Clue:

Sign #5 is where all learners can thrive.  Seek a place where colors bloom and fragrances dance in the air, where each step brings a new sensation and every step tells a story!


July 5th Clue:

Sign #6 is where 2 sports mix. The door to this thrills and chills space is where cold meets grace and the smooth surface keeps a fast pace!


July 12th Clue:

Sign #7 relaxing on the water is heaven, find this sign where the river bends and the paddes dip. Look towards a spot to launch your ship. We have added something new where all can find a ship to use!
