Green rocks hidden throughout Cultus Lake Park as part of new contest

Cultus Lake Park Rocks is a contest aimed to get more folks out to the lake on weekdays this summer

If you’re at Cultus Lake Park and you find a bright, hand-painted rock this summer, don’t ignore it.

It’s part of a new contest aimed to encourage people to head up to Cultus Lake during the weekdays, and at the same time that rock will win you a little seasonal prize.

Cultus Lake Park Rocks is a contest which runs Mondays to Thursdays now until Aug. 29. Each week, 10 green-painted rocks will be hidden in the park. If you find one and hand it in to the park administration office, you’ll win a small prize such as a beach ball, little bucket and tools for sand, or backpack.

The rocks are painted emerald green with “www.cultuslake.bc.ca” written on them.

In addition to winning a prize, the names of rock-finders will be entered into the grand prize draw for that month.

The May grand prize, which is valued at more than $550 includes: a gift certificate from Inkboy Tattoo, Cultus Lake Golf Club package, two nights (tent) camping at Sunnyside Campground, two passes for Cultus Lake Waterpark, gift certificate for Sleepy Hollow Gems, gift certificate for Beethoven’s Pizza, gift certificate for Vanilla Café, and a gift certificate for ice cream at Frosty’s.

By visiting Cultus Lake Park Mondays through Thursdays, you’ll also find cheaper parking rates and fewer crowds.

The green rocks are hidden on Monday mornings (Tuesdays when the Monday is a holiday) and are picked up on Friday mornings. Rocks must be handed in to the Cultus Lake Park Administration Office (4169 Columbia Valley Highway) from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Participants must be 19 years or older to enter the grand prize draw. Only one grand prize entry per week per family is permitted. For contest rules, please visit: www.cultuslake.bc.ca.

Note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly described how the rocks were painted. The Progress regrets the error and any confusion it may have caused.
