Springvale Park's Egg-cellent Easter

It wouldn't be Easter without an Easter Egg hunt.

Inman Park kiddies enjoyed themselves recently to a good ol' fashioned Easter Egg Hunt in Springvale Park.

Aside from giving the children a little bit of fun, the hunt served as a fundraiser for the playground at the park.

The Springvale Park Playground Committee raised about $1,200 for ongoing efforts.

I can't believe the city of Atlanta allows these elitists and their precious kids use this park when there are larger and underutilized parks South of DeKalb. The parks commission should force them to use Coan park and provide enough eggs so that all of the kids South of DeKalb can partipate. Those Lin people always get their way!

Oh for pete's sake, TooBusytohate, these were poeple who lived right around this park using their neighborhood park. A Coan egg hunt would be great - so why don't Coan neighbors put it together? With a park as big as Coan, they could really do something big.

I'm hoping you're being facetious.

Thank you all for your comments regarding Easter egg hunts and parks. They show about as much insight as can be expected from those preferring trailers to actual classrooms. FYI the Coan Midle School neighborhoods hosted three Easter egg hunts in our community supported parks, two of which included organic plant sales from one of our community gardens, the proceeds supporting local parks (though not Springvale I fear).

I have no doubt that there are some parents South of Dekalb who get some use out of those public parks, but the fact remains that very many parents utilize private institutions for pursuit of the Easter Egg. The only way to get these parents to utilize the public parks in their own neighborhood is to force those Lin families to hunt their eggs at Coan. While this story is about the Inman Park egg hunt, I have it on good authority that their were hunts held for Candler Park and Lake Claire as well. (Why the Patch decided to suppress this story is anybody's guess) Think how great the Coan egg hunt could have been had both the North of Dekalb elitist been forced to attend and the nearby neighbors who attend private hunts also joined in. Not only could you have had organic plant sales, but also sold various pickled items, and food trucks selling locally sourced farm to table treats.
