Families are hopping from park to park in Niagara-on-the-Lake again this summer, searching for clues in the second annual Park Hop scavenger hunt.

The animal-themed scavenger hunt leads players to 12 different parks throughout town.

Last year’s first Park Hop proved really popular, said town spokesperson Marah Minor.

“People loved it, especially through COVID. It was a really great success,” she said.

The Park Hop, on until Aug. 31, gives kids a chance to get outside and explore what NOTL’s parks have to offer.

This summer, the scavenger hunt is run on a free app called GooseChase, where participants can easily track their progress.

Players can earn points by visiting all the Park Hop locations and completing various challenges at each spot.

There is also have a prize to be won at the end of the event and a certificate for each participant.

“Whether you’ve lived in NOTL for a long time or you’re a new resident, the Park Hop gets everyone familiar with all the different parks,” said Minor.

“It even opened my eyes to how many beautiful parks we have here.”
