Egg Hunt Important Milestone for Recreation Program
Over 2,500 people attended the third annual Egg Hunt in Cook Park last month. Tigard resident Cheryl Mitchell, who attended the event notes, “It was such a fun event!! Many thanks to all the volunteers that worked so hard to make it a great day for all the kids!!”
“Community participation is what it is all about,” remarks Recreation Coordinator Anthony Markey. “It shows that Tigard residents value family-friendly events close to home.”
Participants supported the event through paid registration, and volunteers make it all happen, according to Markey. “I am thankful for our sponsors and community members who all pitched in to help."
Spring marks the start of the third year of a five-year implementation plan to bring recreation to the City of Tigard. As Tigard grew to be the 12th largest city in Oregon, it also became one of the largest without a public recreation program. The city’s Public Works Department is proud to offer quality parks and recreational programs for everyone in Tigard. Learn more at www.tigard-or.gov/recreation.
