The event culminated with lots of friends, families, and some fantastic fall-like weather. There were special Park Hop guests including, WYFF news anchor Geoff Hart, The Greenville Drive’s JDew and Reedy Rip’it, the Greenville Drive mascot.

Park-Hop-Scavenger-Hunt-Reedy-Rip'it-Greenville-Drive-MascotThe Park Hop Scavenger Hunt was launched this summer by LiveWell Greenville to encourage families within Greenville County to discover or rediscover the parks within their own communities and provide an affordable way for families to share outdoor activities together.

Your Passport To Prizes

The closing event included awards and prizes based on the number of parks you visited throughout the summer. You could win everything from a bicycle to throwing out the first pitch at a Greenville Drive baseball game. As you visited each park you could record answers to clues using a downloadable Park Hop Passport. Over 1,000 passports were downloaded from the Park Hop website and over 300 people registered for the final Park Hop Scavenger Hunt. A local start-up company, Gamemaster, provided a downloadable app for the final scavenger hunt that could be used with your smartphone.
