A report by the Antioch Police on Wednesday, July 13 stated they responded to a call from security at 10:45 pm “regarding a large number of teens (100+) in and around the Antioch Marina. Upon arrival, it was learned they had gathered playing on the Pokémon Go APP. All of the kids remained calm and peaceful. They left a short time later.”
In an email message on Thursday, July 21st, Antioch business owner and resident Vanessa Hellman stated, “I think it’s really great how this Pokémon Go app is bringing people out and and about. I saw so many people down at the marina this evening from kids to older people all laughing together and sharing what they’ve ‘caught’ on Pokémon. I know it’s just a game but in a way I feel it’s bringing the community together.”
The social media challenge requires you post four pictures of yourself with friends and family in Antioch parks during July on the Recreation Facebook page by August 1st and you will receive prizes. Tell them which park or trail, what you are doing, and when.
