Great Henderson Hunt Today
Today, Feb. 12, participants of all ages will gather at Henderson Park for an outdoor adventure - an old-fashioned treasure hunt. Equipped with a map and a list of clues, teams will set out to find wildlife “treasures” that have been hidden along the wooded hiking trails. Prizes will be awarded to the three teams that retrieve the most treasures within the allotted time (1-1/2 hours), with shortest time as the tiebreaker.
The Great Henderson Hunt will begin at 2 p.m. at the pavilion next to the playground on the Livsey side of the park. Participants will pay an entry fee of $5 (free for children 4 years and under) and work in teams of up to five members. Teams can be made up of friends, neighbors, coworkers, classmates, family members, colleagues, club members, or any membership participants choose. The treasures they seek will highlight the diversity of wildlife that inhabits Henderson Park.
Each participant will receive a raffle ticket. Entrants can register at the event or in advance online. Online registrants will receive an extra raffle ticket. Proceeds will benefit the Friends of Henderson Park.
It’s sure to be a lot of fun for kids, seniors, and everyone in between!
More About Henderson Park
This 114-acre park in the middle of Tucker is a great place to take the family, given the diversity of outdoor activities. There is kayaking, bike and nature trails, playgrounds, and you can fish in Lake Erin or feed the ducks. You can also play baseball or tennis, but its most significant sports component is the Tucker Youth Soccer Association. There are two entrances to the park: The Henderson Road address gives access to the soccer fields, and the Livsey Road entrance is for the larger portion that includes the lake and playgrounds.
