We invite you to take part in a virtual roaming adventure with our Park Mascot, Roman the Adventurous Pug. Similar to the Travelocity’s “Roaming Gnome” game we are creating our own Roaming Game. Last year we selected Roman as our Park Mascot as he promotes “water safety” on the Kokosing River by sporting his PDF (Personal Flotation Device) and practicing good judgement while out on the water. The photo below has become his signature photo! To take part in our Roaming Roman adventure, please do the following;

  1. Print the picture below  in black and white or color, click on this link Where is Roman Roaming Download 
  2. Upon your visit to any of our county parks or trails (see list below) take Roman with you.

  3. Capture a photo of Roman at one of our landmarks (example might be the Honey Run Waterfall) or take a selfie of you and Roman at our parks or on the trails ( he might enjoy a good bike ride).
  4. Tag your photo with #roamingwithRomaninKnoxCountyParks and post to your social media site, you might also tag us @explore_knoxcountyparkdistrict too
  5. As our hashtag grows with posts, we will do a random drawings for prizes of those who participate.
