This spring, use our calendar to find daily activities to get your family outside and enjoy the warmer weather!
Spring Fun in our community this week:
Sandy Hook, Gateway National Recreation Area
128 South Hartshorne Drive
Highlands NJ 07732
During the third week in April over 7 days’ time,
Solve clues that arrive as riddles or rhymes.
Structures on Sandy Hook could be key,
Or places of interest there, historically.
You won’t take any “things” from the park,
Leave only your footprints before it gets dark.
Don’t forget that once you have solved all the clues,
Your answers require proof; your photos will do!
HUNT the HOOK is a game for all,
Yet please have an adult so none go A.W.O.L.
Clues will be varied by scope, form and site,
But once you’ve concluded, win you just might!
When you visit Sandy Hook during National Park Week,
Please mind the rules (really not unique).
Stay 6 feet apart from others at play,
And wear your mask when close, inside of Gateway.
The game is afoot!
