As part of celebrating HRA's 70th year, there will be a MONTHLY CHILDREN'S STORY HOUR IN THE PARK. Once a month a well-known children's author will talk about their writing, and read from one of their books. Some benches are available, but we encourage bringing chairs or blankets for seating. Books will be available for purchase also.
Do Come To The Park and Enjoy a Good Story with your Children !!

What to Eggspect: Eggs will be 'hidden' in and around Luria Park (nowhere treacherous or off the beaten path) - kids can run around to gather eggs, then can eggs-change them in for some treats.
The park will be all nice and clean from the stream cleanup on April 9 - thanks to everyone that came out to keep our neighborhood awesome!
