New Easter Egg Hunt event is April 2 at Antioch Park
POSTED: 03/16/2015
Grab your basket and head to Antioch Park for a new twist on the traditional Easter Egg Hunt during a new special event for all ages being presented by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District in early April.

For this Easter Egg Hunt, Antioch Park will be divided into two different scavenger hunts. One area will be designated for egg hunting for ages four to seven. Ages eight and up will walk along the park's one-mile trail to different egg drop areas where each hunter will be responsible for finding specific eggs. Each hunter will be guaranteed at least a dozen eggs. All participants must have a guardian in attendance.

To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under Fun for All and then under special events. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “holiday event.”

This event will and will take place beginning at 6 p.m. on Thursday, April 2 at Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch. Merriam. The cost for one two-hour event is $8 per child for Johnson County residents or $9 per child for nonresidents. March 31 is the registration deadline for this event. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online at, follow the “Register for Activities” link and complete a barcode search for 26461.

This program is also eligible for credit in the Social dimension for the new JCPRD U holistic wellness program for participants ages three to 18. Participants can complete Achievement Classes (similar to academic grade levels) and earn Achievement Badges and awards. To register for JCPRD U, contact Sarah Shaw at (913) 826-2953 or at

Printed copies of JCPRD’s Activities catalog are available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches.

At the Gardner and Roeland Park locations, the open houses will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. The Natureplay open house will take place from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

During the open houses, parents will have an opportunity to visit with teachers and tour the centers. Enrollment materials will be available and enrollment at this time is encouraged as space is limited. This is the only open house for fall registration. A $30 nonrefundable fee will reserve a space for a child in the 2015-16 program, which begins in September.

Natureplay Preschool is a discovery-based learning program for ages three through five. The program offers half-day preschool with one-, to five-days-a-week options, as well as occasional stand-alone programs meant to supplement other learning opportunities and provide children with extended opportunities for outdoor exploration. Natureplay Director Rosanna Munoz holds degrees in biology and early childhood education has been leading JCPRD early childhood programs since 2002.
