Appleton Parks and Recreation wants you to “explore” some fun, recreational opportunities this summer. All you need to do is go and “play” at the amenities below during the dates indicated.* Find the poster with River the Fox at each location and upload a picture for a chance to “win”. We will even supply some free rental equipment thanks to our friends at Play It Again Sports. 


  • Check the schedule for when and where each recreational amenity is being featured.* 
  • If you need equipment, stop by Play It Again Sports (611 W. Northland Ave) and ask them for a set to borrow.
    • Equipment is free to use for up to 2 days.  Participants will need to complete a form before leaving the store with the equipment.
  • At each location look for the sign that includes a picture of River the Fox!  
  • The sign will have a QR code to scan where you can enter a photo of yourself/group utilizing the amenity.  
  • The sign will also include QR codes that will give explanations on how to use the amenity and/or rules of the game if you are trying it for the first time.  
  • You can enter to win once for each recreational amenity you explore, so up to 7 entries this summer!   
  • Grand prize will be a 2025 Family Summer Pool Pass!  
  • So you tried it out and decided you need your own equipment to play more often? Play It Again Sports will provide a 15% discount on any equipment purchase!

*If you are unable to play during the indicated dates, you can still enter to win.  Take your own equipment and take a photo of yourself utilizing the amenity and upload here: APPLETON’S ACTIVE ADVENTURES ENTRY
