Renville County Parks Rock! – Treasure Hunt for Kids and Families


Renville County Parks have begun to rock!

During this time of social distancing, the Renville County Parks Department has kicked off a kindness-spreading treasure hunt for kids and families.  Approximately 50 painted rocks, with inspirational messages and themes, were hidden throughout Beaver Falls County Park last week.

When one finds a painted rock they are asked to photograph it and post the photo to Facebook by tagging @RenCoParks. Finders are encouraged to leave the rock for others to find or replace it with a painted rock of their own.  The goal is not to find and keep the rocks, but to continue placing them for others to discover.  If creating a replacement rock, please write @RenCoParks on the back to continue the project.

The Renville County Parks Departments plans on expanding this project to their other county parks and will make announcements on their Facebook page “Renville County Parks” when ready.

Visitors are reminded to practice social distancing while in the parks by remaining at least six feet away from others that do not live in their household.  Hand sanitizing is also requested before and after holding or exchanging a painted rock.
