Joe Kane, of East Toledo, was the grand prize winner of the Great Park Search, a nine-week scavenger hunt in the Metroparks. Joe, a union painter, and his wife, Gwen, a retired teacher, visited every Metropark most weeks during the contest, along with their dog, Jackie. For the contest, they followed weekly clues to find 69 “hidden” locations throughout the park system and entered the codewords they found on a website. Mr. Kane’s name was drawn from more than 3,000 correct entries. The prize package included more than $1,000 worth of items and gift cards from The Andersons.
The Great Park Search, now in its second year, is sponsored by Metroparks, Toledo.com, Buckeye Cablevision, The Blade and The Andersons.
