5th Annual Parker Quest Is Coming!
How well do you know Parker? Do you know that before Douglas County Libraries in Parker was moved to its current location in the former Crossroads Bowling Lanes, it was in a freestanding building on Mainstreet? And that the books were housed in the Ruth Memorial Chapel before that? Do you know where the new library—opening in September—is located?
Test your Parker history IQ by answering these and other interesting questions during Parker Quest, a scavenger-hunt-style event on Saturday, August 27, from 9-11 a.m. Families, teams, and individuals will enjoy an activity-filled walking tour of downtown Parker while exploring the town’s colorful history, culture, and heritage.
This annual Quest brings long-time residents and newcomers together to participate in fun activities to learn more about the community. This year, the journey begins (and ends) at the Schoolhouse, 19650 E. Mainstreet, where you’ll receive a passport of clues. Solve each clue to find the next location, making your way through places of interest scattered around downtown Parker. It’s an entertaining way to get to know all about Parker’s past—and future!
The Quest is a partnership between the Town of Parker, Parker Area Historical Society, Parker Arts, and Douglas County Libraries.
