Want to win a free Lake Cooley rental?

All summer, we're doing #WhereIsItWednesday. That means we post a picture on Facebook of this water bottle in a different park or community center every Wednesday morning.

All you have to do is leave a comment on the post, letting us know where you think the picture was taken. If you're right, you'll be entered to win a Spartanburg Parks prize pack that includes a free 2-hour rental of your choice at Lake Cooley!

Make sure you follow us on Facebook for your chance to win every Wednesday!
