Explore Yellowknife


The City of Yellowknife is encouraging residents to get outdoors this summer and take part in the “Explore Yellowknife Challenge”, for a chance to win prizes!

Every Friday, beginning June 5 and running through to July 31, 2020, the City will release a clue that describes a secret park, trail, or playground location in Yellowknife. In each location there will be a challenge for residents to complete. Residents should solve the weekly clue, head to the location, complete the challenge and submit it to the City, to be entered into a weekly and grand prize draw!  

Each clue will be shared on the City of Yellowknife’s social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) at approximately noon every Friday. The clue will also be published on the City website and in the Capital Update. Participants should submit their entry via social media or by emailing by 5:00 p.m. the following Wednesday to be included in the prize draws.
