Come celebrate Earth Day with us in the park at our Spring Fling Festival. This year we are excited to be partnering with the Bellaire Environmental and Sustainability Board, who will be bringing in new and different environmental exhibitors and activities in addition to providing invaluable recycling tips and other information at their booth.

We’re thrilled to announce that Bayou City Play will be out leading a nature oriented “adventure play” session as part of the event. Kids will have the opportunity to build structures and play with a wide variety of natural and reused materials, learning valuable skills like independent decision making, planning, and problem solving.

Our Spring Fling Festival will also feature live animal encounters, children’s crafts and activities, food and drink from PUCS Pop Up Coffee Stop, and live music. Some familiar exhibitors and some newcomers to Spring Fling: Cool Down World, Native Plant Society of TexasPlant it ForwardUrban Harvest, & Wildlife Center of Texas.

We hope you’ll join us! This is always a fun and educational day for kids and adults to spend time together out under the trees in the park. Activities and parking will be at the south end of the park near Evergreen Street. 

Special request:  Please collect and bring by your rinsed, empty aluminum cans for our can crush activity.  The kids love crushing cans and we go through quite a few during the event.
