On April 7, 5th - 8th graders can compete to find glow-in-the-dark eggs. On April 8, kids of all ages can enjoy a petting zoo, a visit with the Spring Bunny, arts and crafts, a kid's carnival with fun prizes, and Bunny Hop dance lessons!
On April 7 and 8, spring to Berkeley’s Grove and Willard Parks and join in some fun. We have egg hunts for every kid: a Friday night egg hunt for pre-teens and young teens while younger kids can attend a Saturday morning egg hunt and carnival, including a petting zoo and crafts!
Fifth through 8th graders can fire up their flashlights for the after-dark Friday glow-in-the-dark egg hunt with a chance to win a grand prize of a Nintendo Switch.
Kids from 1 to 10 years old can scamper for eggs on Saturday morning, with ages separated by specific times. Youth 11 years old and up can come at any time for the scavenger hunt.
While you can register on-site at these events, save time by pre-registering on our online recreation portal.
