The trees are blooming, birds are singing and spring has arrived in Redmond. If you’ve been looking for an excuse to get out of the house and enjoy the outdoors, now is the perfect time!
Spring Break Camps
For the kids, spring break is just around the corner. If Disneyland or Daytona Beach isn’t quite in the budget this year, think about signing your son or daughter up for a Spring Break Camp at the Old Redmond Schoolhouse Community Center, 16600 NE 80th Street. An affordable option close to home, full and half day camps are offered in a variety of topics ranging from art to technology, as well as engineering…that is, LEGO engineering! Visit the online Recreation Guide for a full list of programs.
If you don’t want to commit to a week of activities for the kids, think about coming to one of the two Easter themed “egg-citing” events. “The Great Eggscape” takes place on Friday, April 2 from 6-9pm at Farrel-McWhirter Farm Park and is a flashlight egg hunt targeted towards ‘tweens and teens.
A more traditional egg hunt takes place on Saturday, April 3 from 8-11:30am at the Redmond Senior Center, and is targeted towards younger children. However, all are welcome and there will be age appropriate activities at both. Visit the online Recreation Guide for more information.
Other Activities for Spring
Redmond Parks & Recreation also has several events coming up that are completely free to attend and provide the opportunity to connect with friends, neighbors and Parks & Recreation staff.
Remember, It’s always a Great Day to Play!
