The city of Chandler will host its second #DiscoverChandler Instagram Scavenger Hunt on July 24, according to a news release from the city.

“From providing places to play, get fit and stay healthy to fostering new relationships and forging a connection with nature, our close-to-home community parks and recreation facilities strengthen Chandler’s community vitality and continue to foster enriched lifestyles,” said Andy Bass, community services director, in the release. “Our parks and recreation programs and amenities offer ‘a lifetime of discovery,’ and this year’s free, family-friendly Instagram hunt is a great way for the community to come together and learn about the many leisure opportunities available in Chandler.”

The streets of Chandler serve as the playground for the hunt. Using smartphones, participants will locate hotspots, unlock challenges and climb the scoreboard. To win, a participant must find all the items listed within seven challenges and share a photo of each to Instagram.

Completion of each challenge unlocks the next clue and sends participants to another location in downtown Chandler and ultimately to where the X marks the spot of the hidden recreation treasure, according to the release.

Three winning teams receive a Chandler Parks & Recreation All-Access Family Pass, which includes one annual family membership to Tumbleweed Recreation Center and one annual family swim pass, both good for up to six family members. The treasure also includes an assortment of recreation-related items valued at $1,500.


The free hunt runs from 8 a.m.-noon, or until the treasure is found July 24. Registration gets each team member a #DiscoverChandler T-shirt, sunglasses and free entry into the Chandler Aquatics Center for the day. The team must consist of a minimum of two players.

Register through July 21 at http://chandleraz.gov/parkandrecmonth.
