Thanks for your support

Carbondale Recreation would like to sincerely thank the following businesses for generously donating to our annual Easter Egg Hunt: City Market Carbondale, City Market El Jebel, and Bonfire Coffee. The Hunt is a free community event, and we greatly appreciate the local support.

All 6,000 eggs were picked up in less than two minutes, so we would also like to thank all the kids who came out and helped us with cleanup. We purchase our prestuffed eggs from Sunny Bunny Easter Eggs, a nonprofit that provides meaningful employment to over 250 adults with disabilities.

Photos with the Easter Bunny are available for viewing at

Thank you to the Carbondale Parks Crew for helping prepare the park and gazebo for the Hunt, and a very special thank you to Gracie Piccinati.

See you Saturday, March 26, 2016!

Crown Mountain Park Easter Egg Hunt

On Saturday, April 4, Crown Mountain Park was prime hopping ground for the fabled Easter Bunny. Spring had sprung and the warmth of the Colorado sun brought out not only Easter egg hunters but many park users with the many soccer games, little league baseball, tennis players, park users, and BMX riders; it was fun community day. Over 4,200 eggs were hidden in three separate “hunting” areas classified by age from very young to teenage years, and it took the estimated 500-plus participants and families no time at all to fill their spring baskets! Crown Mountain Park would like to recognize and thank our many volunteers — Diana and Brad Elliott and the members of Basalt Boy Scouts Troop 242; board members Rich Pavcek and Katie Schwoerer, and the Crown Mountain staff who were up early to prep baseball and soccer fields as well as hiding eggs. Happy Easter, everyone. Look for many new and exciting upcoming events at your Crown Mountain Park. Stay up to date at

Thank you to all the participants, both young and older, we look forward to seeing you at the next community event.
