Guilford County Parks Team Up for Year-Long Scavenger Hunt | Community


The app helps people find parks, trails and recreation opportunities closest to them. Users can even search by trail type and difficulty, or search by unique park amenities, such as fishing areas, playgrounds, or picnic shelters. Using GIS technology, they can also find the closest parks to their current location.

In 2021, the app expanded to add park and trail locations in Gibsonville, Jamestown, Oak Ridge, Pleasant Garden, Stokesdale, and Summerfield. It now includes information on nearly 200 parks.

To celebrate the expansion, the partners launched the treasure hunt. To play, participants begin by downloading the free Piedmont Discovery app from the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

Once the app is open, participants must browse through the list of parks to find those identified by a special “Scavenger Hunt – Search Here” image. Each month, three or four parks will be identified in the app.

Then it’s time to explore. Visit each park and walk around to find that “Found It!” sign. It will be hidden in plain sight, which means you don’t have to climb a tree or go off a trail to find it. Insider tip: Park staff are authorized to help you find it, so you can ask for a hint.

Each “Found!” sign has a unique code that you use to enter that month’s drawing. Each location found is an entry into the raffle, so one person can have multiple chances to win each month.
