SAN FRANCISCO – San Francisco Recreation and Park Department hosted the City’s largest egg hunt event: Eggstravaganza at Sharon Meadow in Golden Gate Park on Saturday, April 4th. There were egg hunts, carnival rides, giant inflatable, arts and crafts, entertainment, and food. Valet bicycle parking was provided by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition. The 2015 Eggstravaganza was supported by Kaiser Permanente, Zygna.org, San Francisco Marathon, and Recology.
“Eggstravaganza in Golden Gate Park has become a San Francisco family tradition that celebrates our children, our families and our world class park,” said Mayor Ed Lee. “We are proud that San Francisco is able to provide kids and families with fun and safe parks, playgrounds and open recreation space during the Spring season and all year round.”
“We are thrilled to be hosting another year of Eggstravaganza celebrating spring with San Francisco kids,” said Phil Ginsburg, SF Rec and Park General Manager. “Let’s get out, and egg hunt!”
One of the featured events were the annual barbeque cook-off between San Francisco Fire Department (SFFD), San Francisco Police Department (SFPD) and SF Rec and Park. The barbeque sold had raised funds for SF Rec and Park’s scholarship fund.
SF Rec and Park’s scholarship funds help low-income families and support their children and youth to attend SF Rec and Park’s recreation programs. Every year, SF Rec and Park offered scholarship to more than 2,000 low-income children and their families in San Francisco, as a result, many receive more than $1 million worth of recreational programming.
This is SF Rec and Park’s 6th annual Eggstravaganza, a Spring family event with more than four thousands of families come out to play at Sharon Meadow in Golden Gate Park every year. This is part of SF Rec and Park’s overall efforts to serve the diverse families in San Francisco by hosting seasonal citywide family events including Play Day on the Greenin Summer, Scaregrove in Fall, and Holiday Tree Lighting in Winter.
