Village Wide Scavenger Hunt

Monday, August 16, 2021
Forest Park Public Library

The Village Wide Scavenger Hunt is back!

The Historical Society of Forest Park and the Forest Park Public Library have joined forces to create the Village Wide Scavenger Hunt. Grab a booklet and solve our riddles!

This scavenger hunt is a great way to explore Forest Park and can be adapted to a smaller area for families with smaller children or others with accessibility needs.

Pick up a booklet at the Forest Park Public Library (7555 Jackson Blvd) beginning July 30 until August 15. You can also download a PDF here.

Answer the riddle to find each location from Forest Park’s history. Take a picture of the location and write the address in your booklet. Share your answers with the forum on tinyurl.com/FP-Scavenger to see how you did! You can also check your answers against the answer key on the last page.

When you have completed the hunt, take a photo of your game card (found on page 3) and email it to fpscavengerhunt@gmail.com. You will be entered into a drawing for a prize!
