Kids play detective to identify park elements they like and problem areas, hangout spots, or features they feel are missing.
In a newly opened park, a Scavenger Hunt educates kids about a park’s history, natural features, and man-made elements.
Scavenger Hunt sheets are fun to make and offer a playful way for kids to provide feedback or creatively explore the park.
