Harrybrooke Park slates Easter Egg Hunt

Harrybrooke Park in New Milford will hold its annual Easter Egg Hunt March 31.

Guests can arrive any time between 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the park off Still River Drive.

“This egg hunt is different from most in that we don’t have small trinkets that kids will lose in five minutes,” said Billy Buckbee, park executive director.

“Each child collects just 10 eggs and cashes them in for a new book that they choose,” he said.

The Easter Bunny will also be on hand for selfies with attendees.

In addition, the New Milford Lions Club will sell chocolate bunnies while supplies last.

Admission is $5.

The 48-acre park (www.Harrybrookepark.org) features two event pavilions for groups and families to host private parties, a duck pond, nature trails, wetlands, a walking/bicycling loop, and scenic views of the Still River.

The park is also home to the Harden House Museum, built in the 1940’s with a large adjoining flower garden, which can be rented for weddings and other private special occasions.
