Journey to 100 Parks - Beyond 100 Parks

***We completed our journey on August 12, 2021.  Sign pictures, ratings, and links to each blog post can be found after the rules.  Here is a video showing all of our sign pictures, ratings, and dates visited.***

Now that we've added outdoor play to our COVID safe activities, I have decided to start a journey to visit 100 parks (with play equipment.)  We are going to start with all the parks in Crystal and New Hope and move out from there.  We may also visit others on our weekly drives.  I've got a few rules for this adventure.

1) Previous visits don't count.

2) All 4 of us must be present.

3) Only one per day.

4) Must be city, county, state, or other municipal park.  No school parks.

5) Each playground will get a ranking between zero and ten swings. (This was updated from a 0-5 scale on November 27, 2020 to enable a more accurate ranking system. All visits from before this date have also been updated.)

Here is an interactive map of our progress.  Blue pins are parks we plan to visit and green ones have already been checked off.  Let's go!
