Easter Egg Hunt on Good Friday at Clayton Community Park


UPDATE: Despite rain in the forecast, we are going forward as planned with today's Easter Egg hunt at Clayton Community Park (1075 Amelia Church Road)! The Easter bunny will arrive at 9:30, and the egg hunt starts at 10:30. Parking is always at a premium, so we encourage families to arrive early. Read below for info, including maps for overflow parking.


Looking for something fun to do with your preschooler on Good Friday?

Come to our annual Easter Egg Hunt at 10:30 a.m. Friday at Clayton Community Park, 1075 Amelia Church Road. More than 10,000 eggs will be spread across the baseball ball fields for the children to grab up into their baskets as fast as they can. It’s a fantastic frenzy!

Kids will be split into three age groups, so that the oldest ones don’t bump into those still learning to walk. The event is for preschoolers roughly ages 5 and younger.

This popular event always draws a crowd, and attendees are encouraged to take advantage of overflow parking at the Clayton Community Center, 715 Amelia Church Road. Parking is available in a field and a lot at the community center, and it's just a short, scenic walk on a trail through the woods to reach the Easter-Egg-hunting action at Clayton Community Park.

New this year, the Easter bunny and Clayton Fire Department engine will be arriving early at 9:30 a.m., so there's all the more reason to arrive early! 

Check out the map below to get an idea of how short the walk is, and look for signs on Good Friday that lead the way from the community center to the park.

For more info on the Easter Egg Hunt, call the Clayton Parks & Recreation Department at 919-553-1550.
