    • Visitors to Riverside Park and other City parks may encounter colorful painted rocks bearing the Parks & Recreation logo. Each rock is marked with a different task designed to promote mental wellness. For example, the finder might be instructed to list five things for which they are grateful or pay someone a compliment!
    • After completing the task, the finder can exchange the rock for a free T-shirt at the Parks & Recreation office, 532 McCright Drive, or simply leave it in the park for others to find. Residents are invited to post photos of their rocks on social media and tag Parks & Recreation at Victoria Parks and Recreation on Facebook or @victoriaparks_rec on Instagram.
