News from Kentucky State Parks
Parks Officials Offer Safety Tips FRANKFORT, Ky. - (July 15, 2016) - Players of the new "Pokemon Go" game are having luck catching virtual creatures at Kentucky State Parks.
The game encourages people to get out and explore using a smartphone app to collect the virtual creatures. Visitors are welcome to play the game at state parks and historic sites. "All we ask is that they be careful and obey a few basic rules for safety," said state park Naturalist Robert Myers.
His suggestions for those playing the game include:
- Be aware of your surroundings, especially along trails, roadways, cliffs, streams and lakes.You may get to see some real wildlife like a bird or deer. Jenny Wiley State Resort Park in Prestonsburg is planning to have organized hunts for guests during the summer.
Pokemon Go players can also take advantage of the many events and programs at Kentucky State Parks.
