"So of course the spring time event, everybody is eager to go outside," said Kate King, Executive Director at Spring Garden Regional Parks and Recreation Center. "We kind of see this as an opportunity to bring the family out for the first time after a long winter. We do it in the park so that they can come and see the park for one. But, playing in the play ground, take a walk. It kind of bring everybody out to not only just hunt eggs but get outside, do something with the family and get active," said King.
