Hippity hop, Easter’s on its way! The Easter Bunny has been filling thousands of eggs with candy and prizes for the Egg Hunt at our annual Easter Egg Hunt! We are pleased to be able to offer our annual Egg Hunt with the elements you know and love! However, it is important to note that this year’s event will come with some changes in order to offer it in a safer way.
The first change is that we are offering more hunt timeslots than in years past. We will have hunts at 9 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 10 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. For $10, each family will register to hunt a 20’x20’ section of the field. Participants will also need to specify how many hunters they will have on their field for an additional $5 per hunter. We expect this event to fill quickly so it is important that participants register in advance to ensure that they will have a section of field to hunt. If fields are still available, day-of registration will be offered for $15 for a field and $7 per hunter. Here is an example map of what the field sections will look like.
We encourage everyone to stay for additional EGGstravaganza festivities which include live entertainment and, of course, photos with the Easter Bunny! Some eggs will contain a slip of paper for prizes and don’t forget your basket to collect all your goodies. Register today!

Your dog will bark for bones when all kinds of dog treats, bones and toys are hidden for your furry friends. Your dog will be allowed to try to find as many goodies as possible. Dogs must remain on leashes at all times. Don’t forget to bring a basket to put your treats in!
Before the hunting ends, each dog will receive a “doggie bag” to take home. We will also draw for door prizes. Dogs and their owners may roam around in the park after the event and take advantage of our trail, which is a little over a mile in length and loops around the lake. Please be on time for this event because it doesn’t take long for the dogs to gather all the bones. Cost is $8/10 per dog in advance or $15 for day-of registration.
NOTE: You must turn in proof of vaccinations when registering your pet. Please call (636) 332-9236 or stop by the front desk to register.
