Crystal Lake Park District launches Park Quest contest

CRYSTAL LAKE – In an effort to promote all of its parks, the Crystal Lake Park District has created the Park Quest program to encourage residents to explore the 1,370 acres of land in the district.

Park Quest 2014, which will run through Aug. 8, challenges families to complete 40 questions on a map that will take participants to all the parks in Crystal Lake. For every 10 park challenges completed, participants will receive a prize and a raffle ticket for the grand prize. Participants can earn up to four raffle tickets.

The grand prize, a $250 gift certificate to the Lakewood Lou Malnati's, will be awarded at the Blast on the Beach on Aug. 9.

The event was created after park district staff learned of a family that visited every park last summer and chronicled the visits with photographs. Park district staff encourage Park Quest participants to take photographs of their visits and bring them to the park district office.

Maps for the challenge can be picked up in community locations such as the park district office, Crystal Lake Public Library, Crystal Lake Main Beach, Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce and more.
