"We Are #GSOParksandRec" Scavenger Hunt: Week 1 This week's clue is: Take a stroll on the boardwalk to find the first heart. It will be in a spot where you’ll find “serenity” Each Friday in July, Parks and Recreation staff will hide a “We Are #GSOParksandRec” heart-shaped sign in one of the department’s outdoor facilities. Follow the clues posted on the department’s Facebook and Instagram pages Friday afternoons to find where. When you find the heart, take a picture of yourself with it, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, then leave it for the next person to find. Each week, all pictures submitted by 12 pm Thursday will be entered into a drawing to win a Parks and Recreation prize pack worth an estimated $50. It includes kayak passes, free games of golf, pedal boat passes, and other Parks and Recreation swag.Every heart will be hidden in plain sight, so stay on trails, sidewalks, and open fields and out of sensitive habitats, water, and planted areas. No climbing or off-roading will be required to find a heart.

The 15,000-square-foot Griffin community recreation center marks the first such facility built since 1990, when the City opened the Leonard center. Funding for development and acquisition of the land was made possible by the 2000 voter-approved bond referendum. Amenities of the new facility include a gymnasium that can be used for basketball and volleyball, meeting rooms, and a fitness room with cardio equipment, free weights, and strength training equipment.
The scenic 48-acre park and center is named to honor Marylene F. Griffin, a philanthropist who with her husband co-founded the D.H. Griffin Wrecking Company Inc. She also appreciated the value of recreation as she was an avid golfer. In fact, the center is located on the site of the former Twin Oaks Golf Course.
