Gahanna Parks Scavenger Hunts

The weather outside might be chilly, but there is plenty of family fun to be had in Gahanna Parks! We invite you to #OptOutside Day with Gahanna Parks & Recreation and take part in these fun scavenger hunts:

1. Challenge the kids with a fun nature hunt! Head out to your favorite local park and explore the trails looking for amazing wildlife in one of Gahanna’s beautiful parks. Download the nature hunt checklist (LINK) on your phone or print it off so to mark off each completed task! How many items can you find?

2. Compete in the #OptOutside Scrambled Scavenger Hunt this winter! Visit some of Gahanna’s gorgeous parks and unscramble the letters you find at each to uncover the final hidden word! (LINK to directions and list here.) Letters will be posted on candy canes across the parks and will stay up through December. Earn a swag bag from Gahanna Parks & Rec (and REI) for unscrambling all the clues (while supplies last)!
