QR code hunt launched around High Park

13th April 2022

Get to know the High Park area with a free QR code puzzle trail this month. Organised by the High Park Project, the QR Code trail is full of puzzles, riddles and questions to help you test your little grey cells.

‘The QR code trail has been developed to encourage people to explore and find out more about the High Park area in a fun and interesting way,’ said Catrin Hughes, Activities Facilitator for the High Park Project. 

‘We want High Park residents and people from the wider Southport community to come and enjoy what High Park has to offer.

There are 12 QR codes hidden around High Park’s three parks which include Devonshire Road Park, Canning Road Park and Russell Road Recreation Ground. All you need to play is a smartphone with a QR code reader and a map, which can be found on the High Park Project Website. (highparktftc.org.uk)

There is a prize for the best team name and those that get all the questions right will be put into a prize draw. Prizes include a family pass to Pleasure Land.  The High Park QR Code trail can be completed alone, with your family or as part of a team.

QR Codes have been increasing in popularity and are widely used by brands, government and tourist attractions as a way of easily accessing information. They are a type of barcode, that contains information like links to a website, account information, phone numbers, or vouchers. They are safe to use and are an easy way to give people the option of finding out more information.

The High Park Project is a National Lottery Community funded project, that has five years’ worth of funding. Currently, in its 4th year, the High Park Project aims to address health inequalities, social isolation and facilitate community improvement activities in the High Park area of Southport – an area of multiple deprivations.

The project aims to do this by helping to give a voice to the community and challenging residents and stakeholders to improve their community, encourage healthier lifestyles and make them more accessible, and help to reduce social isolation.
