Knox County Parks Hide and Seek program promotes safe, healthy activities during pandemic

The 'Hide and Seek' program takes place at four different locations within the Concord Park system from March 1 until noon on April 30.

KNOX COUNTY, Tenn. — The Knox County Parks and Recreation Department's new 'Hide and Seek' program aims to promote safe and healthy activities during the pandemic.

Officials said the game will take place at four different locations within the Concord Park system from March 1 until noon on April 30. 

The four parks are Admiral Farragut, Carl Cowan, The Cove, and The Point.

To play, participants can download maps that show the hiding spots in each park. Click here to download the maps.

At each of the four parks, there are five hiding spots with a tag number.

Go to the location in the park and write the tag number down on the map or on a plain sheet of paper.

Each participant also should include their name, email, mailing address, and phone number on the tag list.

Once you find all 20 hiding spots, you can drop off the list of tag numbers at the Knox County Parks and Recreation Office on 2447 Sutherland Avenue from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

You can also email the list to parks@knoxcounty.org.

The deadline is noon on April 30.

The department said it will award $10 gift certificates to Dairy Queen to 10 participants. 

Winners will be drawn randomly from entries that have all 20 tag number locations. Winners will be notified via email and a winners list will be posted on the department’s website.
