Winterfest Passport Experience 

The Passport is the perfect excuse to get outside and enjoy a variety of winter activities ranging from sledding to snowshoeing to custom obstacle courses! Eighteen City parks (including Springbrook Nature Center) will be included on the passport; check in at at least five and receive some cool gear as prizes! Passports will be available in three ways: using your phoneas printable version on website, or for pick up at City Hall or Springbrook Nature Center during business hours.

  2. Mobile Passport
  3. Paper Passport
  4. Passport Activities
  5. Snowshoe Rental

Here’s How It Works:

During the course of the event, January 23-31, visit any five (or more if you wish) of the participating parks and complete one or more of the featured activities. Then, find the main park sign where a Passport poster is attached to the back. Some parks have two signs, in which case both will have the poster.  You will only need to visit one as they have the same information. The Passport does not need to be completed in one day. In fact, we prefer you spread your visits out over the course of the week. I.e. snowshoeing at Springbrook on Sunday, sledding at Commons on Tuesday, etc. 

Passports can be completed via the mobile passport or the paper passport.
