Owlexander’s Hoot Route
Owlexander, the Centerville-Washington Park District mascot, hoots “welcome” to you! He lives in Grant Park and he is going on a great adventure! What will he find along the way and whoooo will he meet?
This Nature Literature Trail is a 1/2 mile, wheelchair and stroller accessible, crushed gravel/dirt path through the woods. Children ages 3-8 with their adult companion can hike along the storybook trail and learn about the animals that live in the park. While reading the story, children can play active games, solve riddles and more. The trailhead to Owlexander’s Hoot Route may be found at Grant Park, Normandy Entrance, 501 Normandy Ridge Road, Centerville. Please note that the trail may become saturated with water after heavy rains or significant snow melt.
Owlexander’s Hoot Route opened to the public in April 2011. It is made possible through a partnership between the Centerville-Washington Park District and the Washington-Centerville Public Library and is fully funded by the Yeck Family Foundation.
Be sure to visit the Washington-Centerville Public Library’s website for online Hoot Route puzzles and a word find! You will also find downloadable coloring pages and a recommended reading list.
