Agents of Discovery 2024

Join the Adventure-Get ready to explore four incredible parks in Crystal Lake and uncover their hidden treasure!

This summer, once a month a park will be featured and become your playground, filled with exciting challenges waiting to be conquered.

Here's how to play:

Download the free 'Agents of Discovery App' on your phone and create an account.

Locate the "Explore Crystal Lake Park District " mission. Then it's off to LIPPOLD PARK, our first featured spot.

When you arrive at Lippold Park, the App will direct you to a specified area. Your phone will alert when you are close to a challenge we have created.

Your Mission of the Month will be finished after you complete eight small games/puzzles at that park.

On the last day of each month, that mission will no longer be available to complete so make sure you find time to conquer each mission within the time frame allowed.

Stop in to the Park District Administration Office (1 E. Crystal Lake Avenue, Crystal Lake) and pick up a small prize after each month's mission is complete.

Each month a new prize will be offered in the prize chest or until supplies last. Prizes will be awarded to Agents who complete each mission.
