TUCKER, Ga. (April 8, 2019) – Tucker’s Parks and Recreation Department is teaming up with Friends of Kelley Cofer Park to start a new springtime tradition. Boys and girls 12 and under are invited to participate in the City’s first-ever Egg Hunt on Saturday April 20 at 2 p.m.
“We hope that moms and dads will bring their little ones to see what the Easter Bunny left behind,” said Parks Operations Manager Jason Collins. “We expect he’s going to hide about 1,500 eggs with toys, stickers and special treats inside, so we’ll need some help finding them all.”
For reasons of safety and egg equity, children will be split up according to age groups. Participants and their parents will find Parks and Recreation staff at the concession stand by the baseball fields to direct them to the proper field to hunt with their age group.
The event comes just over a month before the opening of Kelley Cofer Park Pool, which for the first time this year, will feature a brand new and completely functional splash pad. Several special events are scheduled for the pool’s 2019 season, including a July 4 cookout and a dive-in movie night. More information on all special events in Tucker’s parks can be found at tuckerga.gov/parks.
There are more than 300 acres of parkland within the City of Tucker. The City assumed responsibility for its parks and the Tucker Recreation Center from DeKalb County in 2018.
