The Garden City Recreation Department is once again sponsoring the annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 7 at Garden City Community Park. This year three hunts will be held beginning at 10 a.m. with three age divisions: preschool to kindergarten, grades one and two; and grades three to five.
Special eggs will be stuffed and hidden for all divisions and each hunt will also feature a grand prize (an Easter basket filled with goodies), which will go to the youngster who finds the egg marked “Number 1 Lucky Egg.”
For further information about the hunt, please call the recreation department at 465- 4075. For weather updates the day of the hunt, please call Community Park at 483-2525. The raindate for the Easter Hunt will be Monday, April 9 at 10 am.
Get a head start on the summer. 2012 Garden City Pool applications have been sent to all residents! Check out the Splash, see all the great events planned, and join us for another summer of Fun in the Sun at the GC Pool. If you did not receive your application, please visit the website at www.gardencityrecreation. org or visit the administrative office at 108 Rockaway Ave.

You can also make your own by listing your child’s name, address, phone number, birth date, grade he/she will be entering in September and the session and class code for which you are registering with a first and second choice. Mail all information with full payment of $15 for each child with your pool application. A separate $15 check must be enclosed for each child. Please make all checks payable to the “Inc.

In case of inclement weather, the recreation department’s website will be updated to show program cancellations. Please visit the website at www.gardencityrecreation.org to see if any event is canceled or postponed due to the elements.
