PosterMayor Don Walters is pleased to announce that the City of Cuyahoga Falls will be hosting a citywide scavenger hunt event in celebration of National Public Lands Day on Saturday, September 25, 2021, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The scavenger hunt will span 12 city parks to encourage residents to explore public spaces in Cuyahoga Falls. 

Scavenger hunt sheets will be located at each of the 12 park sites. The sheets will contain a question about each park. For each correctly answered question, residents will earn one entry into a drawing to win prizes donated by local businesses and organizations to encourage engagement with local public lands. Residents are encouraged to go to as many parks as possible to increase chances of winning prizes. All scavenger sheets must be submitted via a QR code link prominently displayed at each park. Trash bags will also be provided at each park site for anyone who may want to participate in cleanup efforts. 

The twelve park sites are:

  • Babb Run Park
  • Galt Park                               
  • High Bridge Glens Park
  • Kennedy Park
  • Keyser Park
  • Lions Park
  • Linden Park
  • Oak Park
  • River Front Park
  • Trails End Park
  • Valley Vista Park
  • Water Works Park

Staff from Akron Honey, in partnership with HiHO Brewing Co., will deliver a presentation on the importance of native plants and pollinators at 10:30 a.m., in the High Bridge Glens Park pavilion, located at 1817 Front Street. The presentation will last until 11:00 a.m. and will be followed by a cleanup in the park and surrounding area. Gloves, trash bags, and trash grabbers will be provided on-site for the cleanup activity. Residents who take a photo showing their participation in any National Public Lands Day activity will receive $1 off a pint at HiHO Brewing Co. on Saturday, September 25. 

National Public Lands Day 2021 theme "More Ways to Connect to Nature" encourages all to get outside and enjoy public spaces. For questions or additional information, please contact Bryce Pulley at bpulley@cityofcf.com or 330.971.8287.
