5th Annual Egg Hunt is a Mad Dash for 3,000 Eggs

The 5th annual Patterson Easter Egg Hunt was complete madness and so much fun! There were perhaps 300 neighbors there, and three separate egg hunts for about 3,000 eggs. Little kids, big kids, and a small 2nd round for those that missed the initial dash. Huge thanks to Servant Church for partnering with FoPP once again, to everyone who contributed eggs, cascarónes, and brunch food, and to Cherrywood Coffeehouse for donating coffee.

3rd Annual Patterson Park Easter Egg Hunt is April 15

The 3rd annual Patterson Park Easter Egg Hunt will be on Saturday, April 15 at 10 a.m! Friends of Patterson Park is pleased to partner with Servant Church for another great community event. We will hunt for eggs, blow lots of bubbles, smash cascarónes and enjoy a potluck brunch in our beautiful neighborhood park!

Join neighbors on Thursday, April 13, @ 8pm at Cherrywood Coffeehouse to prep for the weekend egg hunt and stuff 500 plastic eggs!

Wondering what you can bring on Saturday morning? Extra plastic eggs with toys/stickers/candy, extra chocolate eggs, extra cascarónes, fruit, pan dulce, muffins, or other brunchy food to share. We’ll have coffee and lemonade.

Egg hunt starts at 10 a.m. sharp! We’ll have separate search areas for the ❤ and >3 kids, and a golden egg prize!

Tree Mulching and Trash Pickup on April 2

Austin Parks Foundation and Friends of Patterson Park are pleased to partner with Servant Church, friends and neighbors for a volunteer work day to provide some TLC to the trees at Patterson Park!

We had a great It’s My Park Day a few weeks ago, and spread 20 cubic yards of mulch to 102 trees at the southeast corner of the park. We would like to keep the momentum going to protect the heritage oaks along the western edge of the park, near Cherrywood Rd. before the heat of summer hits. We will also do some light trash pick up in that section of the park, as needed.

Kids accompanied by an adult are always welcome. Dress for the weather, wear closed-toed shoes, and bring a water bottle to refill. If you have a wheelbarrow you can bring, please do! This event is part of Servant Church’s Service Sunday, which will bring 100+ volunteers to several sites around the neighborhood for community service.

Sunday April 2
10:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
