Our friends at Feet First Philly have a fun new way to enjoy four amazing parks all November long. Visit Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR) Park, Grays Ferry Crescent Park, Tacony Creek Park, or Cobbs Creek Park and join in a fun virtual scavenger hunt where you can win prizes while you enjoy the outdoors.
All you need to do is download the bingo cards. Then while you explore the park, look for the landmarks on the bingo card and take pictures of them. Once you get bingo (vertical line, horizontal line, or diagonal line), submit your pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on social media using the tag @feetfirstphilly and #[parkname]VSH. You will be entered to win prizes and have a chance to win a grand prize at the end of the month.
The GoPhillyGo mobile site and Android app show you easy walking, biking, and transit directions to these parks and many more across our region. Spending time outdoors has physical and mental health benefits, and when you commute to parks sustainably, you also benefit the environment. Use the links below to get directions to the virtual scavenger hunt parks. Good luck!
