Two family-friendly happenings this weekend: Ravens Duet is offering new scavenger hunts, and DC parks are reopened as of today (Friday). I nearly called this a Weekend Roundup, but hesitated to return to that feature of normal times, because DC is still in a public health emergency, and I hope you all stay safe. The following are activities you can do while abiding by social distancing guidelines.
Scavenger Hunt Pickup, Sunday, noon-3 p.m., Lincoln Park. Last week, many of you enjoyed scavenger hunts with Ravens Duet, which I wrote about here. This Sunday, May 31, Brandt of Ravens Duet will be back at Lincoln Park with free bingo sheets. Complete bingo and return to the park and get a sticker (Brandt will be set up to do this from a distance). Can’t make it on Sunday? You can download all Raven’s Duet hunts here, and check out upcoming events here.
DC Department of Parks and Recreation parks reopen. Starting today, DPR has reopened parks, athletic fields, walking paths, hiking trails, tracks, dog parks and tennis courts. Low-contact sports, like tennis, are permitted. Contact sports, like basketball, football and soccer, are prohibited. Remaining closed: DPR playgrounds, rec centers, public pools and indoor facilities. DPR urges residents to adhere to social distancing guidelines:
