pool egg hunt

Join Rock Island Parks and Recreation for an Egg Hunt or a Home Bunny Visit!

This year’s Spring Egg Hunt is free, but children ages 3-10 will need to be pre-registered to attend. Thousands of colorful eggs will fill Lincoln Park, located at 11th Avenue and 38th Street, on Saturday, April 1st for the annual Rock Island Parks & Recreation Spring Egg Hunt. The hunt areas will be for pre-registered children from the same family to hunt for eggs together. Bring your bags and baskets to gather eggs scattered throughout your hunt area. Dance to some silly songs while you wait and keep your eye out for a special bunny visitor to wave to! The egg hunt will begin promptly at 9:00 am. Do not be late, as eggs are only available for a short time! If weather is questionable call the rain line that morning at (309) 732-RAIN. Rain date will be April 2nd. This event is co-sponsored by Rock Island Township, South Rock Island Township, METRONET, and Quad City Rugby. Register for free online at or call (309) 732-PARK.


Hop in the pool to hunt for eggs at the Underwater Egg Hunt! This unique egg hunt will take place at the Rock Island Fitness & Activity Center on April 2nd.  Register for a time slot at 3:30 pm, 4:00 pm, or 4:30 pm for only $7. Participants will grab empty eggs out of the pool to turn in for an egg-cellent goodie bag! Children under 48” are required to have an adult in the pool with them. Registration closes on Friday, March 31st. Register online at, or call RIFAC at (309) 732-7275.
