We challenge you to find these 10 items in parks and natural areas throughout the county. While current social distancing recommendations make events more logistically challenging, exploring our local walking paths, playgrounds and wildlife areas is easy. The Newton County Park Board has created a list of 10 items to find in recreational spots across our community. Take a drive, take a walk, take a bike ride and find the items listed. The document can be found here. We would love to see photos of people participating in this activity. Email photos of yourself in the specific park with the completed checklist to to be recognized and entered into a drawing for special prizes.
