RI Great Outdoors PursuitDiscover Rhode Island parks and enjoy free and low-cost summer activities. Rock climb, fish, hike, bike, kayak, and win great prizes!

Participate in the RI Great Outdoors Pursuit, a wonderful program designed to help families enjoy the Ocean State’s recreational parks. Each “pursuit” or event involves fun outdoor activities, challenges, and children’s games, as well as music, food, informational exhibits, raffles, and more. Think “Party in a Park.”

Four of the events take place on specific days once a month from May through August. In addition, there are a number of self-guided events that you can do on your own. You register and participate as a minimum two-member team with at least one adult and one child.

Your team will earn points for each event you attend. The more pursuits, the more points you earn. And the more points, the better your chances are to win prizes.

Don’t miss the fun! This year’s Pursuit kicks off on Sunday, May 18 at Lincoln Woods and continues into August. Learn more here.
