Treasure Hunt

Explore Dix Park during this fun free treasure hunt through a partnership with Triangle Treasure Hunt!

How it works:

  • Recommended for teams of 2-4 people. The puzzles/clues are geared toward ages 13 and up, but younger children are welcome to participate along with adults.
  • One person will register per team for a start time. Please do not register each team member.
  • Participants meet at the check-in tent in the Kirby Building parking lot (1800 Umstead Drive Raleigh 27603).
  • After an initial briefing, teams depart with their treasure map on a scavenger hunt following clues, solving puzzles, and cracking codes to find and unlock the treasure chest for a prize!
  • The hunt takes about 60-90 minutes to complete and involves walking a total distance of 1.5-2.5 miles.
  • We will run the treasure hunt rain or shine, unless the weather becomes dangerous due to lightning or other severe weather conditions. Please come dressed for the weather to participate.

Accessibility is a primary focus for early park improvements and all future planning and development.

Parking: Accessible parking spaces are available in all lots.

Restrooms: Accessible port-a-johns are located at the Big Field and Flowers Field. Indoor accessible restrooms are available in the newly renovated Chapel.
