Our Amazing Place Community Treasure Hunts are free community events that seek to connect people to their local communities – and one is coming to Riccarton on March 3. While racing around the community in a fun treasure hunt, teams will discover people, places, businesses and services that are present in our neighbourhood.
The treasure hunt trail features a number of stations which each have a challenge, activity or task that must be completed by teams to gain a stamp for their "passport". These stations are hosted by local organisations at their own venue and give organisations a chance to showcase some of what they provide as a kind of open day. The day finishes with a celebratory event, BBQ and prize giving at Harrington Park!
