“We exist to provide healthy and diverse recreational opportunities through programs, events, parks, and natural areas, for all ages and abilities, ensuring that the City of Tigard is a desirable place to live and play.”
Finding Frosty and Friends in Summerlake Park
Tigard did not have a white Christmas this year but that didn’t stop snowmen from visiting Summerlake Park. Frosty the Snowman and his four friends hid throughout the park as part of the Snowman Scavenger Hunt.
The mission for those who chose to accept it was to find each snowman and take a picture with each one. Within 24 hours of the beginning of the hunt, ten people had successfully completed the mission. A week later, more than 30 people had completed the mission. You can check out some of the winners on the city’s Facebook page.
Each winner received an exclusive winter prize package. Here’s what some of the winners thought about the Scavenger Hunt.
