HEAD = Mark Your Calendars for LNCP Easter Egg Hunt and Spring Concert
Time to break out the baskets, lawn chairs, and spring wardrobe as Little Nancy Creek Park (LNCP) gears up for a season of outdoor family fun and activities. The park is located on the North Buckhead side of Peachtree Dunwoody Road at the Winall Down Road intersection
First up is the annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 8. Kids of all ages are welcome. The park is divided into two areas for age-specific hunts. Younger children will search for eggs in the playground area. Older kids get to hunt for Easter treasure down the trail and toward the back part of the park.
Then on Friday evening May 12, the LNCP will host a Spring Concert with the band Carter Rude & Friends. The event will include face painting, food trucks, and King of Pops.
Cathy Boston Home will once again be a sponsor.
“Barring rain, those dates are good,” says Whit Ferguson, LNCP board member. He advises residents to check the park’s Instagram (@littlenancycreekpark) or website (https://littlenancycreekpark.org/) for more details. And closer to event dates, be on the lookout for neighborhood emails and signs at the park.
