Washington County Parks is offering a program called “Passport to Parks” to add fun to this summer’s parks visits.

The passport, available at all Washington County Parks offices, has a map of those parks, along with “scavenger hunt” type questions about each of the major parks and trails in the county. Participants may receive a prize by completing all questions from at least five out of the nine parks. Bring the completed passport to any park office to receive a prize.

Park offices are at Big Marine Park Reserve, Historic Courthouse, Lake Elmo Park Reserve and St. Croix Bluffs Regional Park. Passports will be collected through Nov. 1.

Washington County Parks provide a gateway to scenic landscapes and treasured natural resources, unique to the Twin Cities region. With more than 4,400 acres of parkland, Washington County provides a variety of ways to discover and enjoy the outdoors. See more information at www.co.washington.mn.us and see “Parks and Open Space.”
