Rock Around the Park adds new beat to Lamoureux ParkJuly 14, 2021
Add an extra beat to your step the next time you go walking or rolling in Lamoureux Park with Rock Around the Park.
The City of Cornwall’s Parks and Recreation Department has introduced a fun new music trivia challenge that requires you to test your music knowledge while walking or rolling through Cornwall’s beautiful waterfront park.
Here’s how Rock Around the Park works:
– Take a walk or go for a bike ride – and don’t forget your cell phone!
– Start at the Cornwall Tourism pop-up visitor information centre near the entrance of the Cornwall Civic Complex. Grab a pencil and a gamesheet from the container on the lightstand beside the pop-up centre.
– Use your cell phone’s QR Code reader to scan the first sign.
– Listen to the music, and make note of the song.
– Continue through all 8 stations on the trivia challenge trail and guess each song. The goal is to guess the theme that ties all of the songs together.
– At the end of the trail, scan the final sign and submit your guess for the theme that brings all the songs together!
There’s both a short route and a long route available and you can plan your route with the handy online map.
“We hope that Rock Around the Park encourages Cornwallites to get outside and exercise both their brain and their body,” said Lorne Taillon, Recreation Supervisor.
Songs, and their overarching theme, will change every two weeks. One winner will be drawn at random every two weeks. The prize is a gift card to a local business.
“We won’t be giving away too many hints for this session’s answer,” said Joel Allen, Recreation Coordinator. “Just take your time and enjoy the music for all ages!”
