Yamhill County Parks & Recreation Tangleboxing
In 2006, Yamhill County Parks and Recreation celebrated its 50th Anniversary and one of the most popular events was a treasure hunt called Tangleboxing, which was the idea of James and Susan Ruggles (both former Yamhill County Parks and Recreation Board Members). Due to the overwhelming success of that first year, Yamhill County Parks and Recreation has continued this activity as an annual summer event. Each year we develop new clues and hiding spots, so people can continue to participate each year.
What is Tangleboxing? Tangleboxing is an outdoor summertime treasure hunt! Follow the clues, find the boxes, record your discoveries and compete for prizes! Beginning each June, Tangleboxes are hidden in local area parks and waiting to be discovered. Each box contains a rubber stamp, ink pad and guest book. To find each Tanglebox, participants need to purchase an Official Passport to your Yamhill County Parks and follow clues provided in the passport, to the Tanglebox at each participating park. Once participants find each Tanglebox, they will use the stamp in the Tanglebox to record their discovery. Participants who find all the Tangleboxes will be eligible for a prize drawing in September. Tangleboxing is great for all ages and an excellent opportunity for families to get outside and visit a wide selection of parks.
