Meath Local Sports Partnership is leading a new innovative programme which integrates modern technology, physical activity and having fun! It is a new and exciting programme to encourage families to get out and exercise together. Funding for this new programme has been provided under the Healthy Ireland measure.
The Adventure Walks app is a collection of 1 and 2 km treasure hunts. All treasure hunts are designed for families with children from ages 4 – 15. Families can get out and about exploring somewhere new, or seeing somewhere they have lived all their life. Meath LSP is currently trialling the app in Blackwater Park in Navan – our aim is to develop this app in as many parks and towns in Meath as feasibly possible over the coming year.
There are 8 treasure hunts mapped in Blackwater Park – most of which are both buggy and wheelchair inclusive.
This app is FREE to download and requires minimum personal information.
Each time you complete a course you will be awarded 100 dollars; you need to collect 1000 dollars (10 courses) to unlock the most difficult challenge (celebrity – Johnny Sexton). You can repeat the same course as many times as you wish.
Happy treasure hunting!!!
