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.
