Knox County Parks and Recreation Offering Hide and Seek Program in Concord Park System

The Knox County Parks and Recreation Department is introducing a new Hide and Seek program.

The game will take place at four different locations within the Concord Park system from today until noon on April 30. The four parks are: Admiral Farragut, Carl Cowan, The Cove and The Point.

Officials hope the game will combine social distancing with physical activity, fun and – potentially – free ice cream.

“This is a great way to provide families a safe and healthy outing during the pandemic,” Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs said. “We hope we can use this to encourage and promote the use of our parks.”

To play, participants can download maps that show the hiding spots in each park. A numbered tag has been placed at each hiding spot. Go to the location in the park and write the tag number down on the map or on a plain sheet of paper. Participant also should include their name, email, mailing address and phone number on the tag list.

Participants can drop off their lists of tag numbers at the Knox County Parks and Recreation Office, 2447 Sutherland Ave., from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Lists also can be emailed to

The deadline is noon on Friday, April 30.

The department will award $10 gift certificates to Dairy Queen to ten participants. Winners will be drawn randomly from entries that have all 20 tag number locations. Winners will be notified via email and a winners list will be posted on the department’s website.
