Where in the Parks is Owlexander?

Friday, May 1, 12:00 p.m.-Sunday, June 7, 8:00 p.m.
CWPD Owlexander mascot "Where in the Parks is Owlexander?"

Do you and your family love a good mystery or scavenger hunt? We’ll follow the riddles and clues left at parks each Friday in May to catch this Park District hero turned sneaky character! He snatched up all the white trillium (Ohio’s state wildflower) in the Miami Valley to keep it for his personal collection! If the wildflowers aren’t put back into place, we won’t be able to enjoy them in the parks!

The first clue will be presented on Centerville-Washington Park District’s Facebook and Twitter accounts on Friday, May 1. Or, register here to receive clues via email and get your family started on this park adventure!
