Lake Ridge Parks and Rec Fish Out

The Easter Bunny also hid some eggs and we need you to help us find them! There will be multiple egg hunts each day this year with over 7,000 eggs filled with treats. Don’t forget to bring your camera so you can take a photo with the Easter Bunny. Come see our spring chicks and baby animals, check out the spring plantings in the greenhouse, take a hayride, and rejoice the spring!
