The City of Tyler Parks and Recreation Department launched a new QR code-based Scavenger Hunt Program in February of 2020, with a goal to increase exploration within the City’s parks and trails.
The Scavenger Hunt has now been expanded and updated with 12 new clues hidden across Tyler area parks for people to find and complete.
QR codes are located at each participating park for people to scan with their cellphones to get the task instructions.
Participating parks include Bergfeld Park, Children’s Park, Emmett J. Scott Park, Faulkner Park, Glass Recreation Center, Goodman-LeGrand Museum, Hillside Park, Tyler Rose Garden, Rose Rudman Trail and Southside Park.
Upon completion, people may submit to earn a Master Hunter decal on the Tyler Parks and Recreation webpage, www.TylerParksandRec.com. Use the hashtag #TylerParksScavengerHunt and join the hunt!
For more information, please contact Tyler Parks and Recreation at (903) 531-1371.
