Blossom, Greenie and Oak upped their hiding game! The 3 gnomes hide in 3 natural park areas each month...then the Gnomes Roam! Check back monthly to learn new locations. Snap a pic and post your discovery on Instagram or Facebook! Happy hunting
SEPTEMBER GNOME HUNT
The gnomes found 3 new parks to hide in and challenge you to locate them. Discover incredible park natural areas, winding trails and tranquil forests as you look for the gnomes.
Put on your “Got Gnomes?” goggles and explore Canal Acres’ 31 natural acres. Our 3 friends in red pointy hats have followed forest trails off the main trailhead…happy hunting!
Location: 13900 Canal Rd. ( Parking available in the Bryant Woods Nature Park parking lot.)
It’s time for a work out as the gnomes headed for the hills in Freepons Park! Explore trails that wind up, up, up through the woods in this 6 acre park.
Location: 1399 Bickner St.
