Special Events at Smith-Gilbert Gardens


Easter Egg Hunt

Mark your calendars, Smith-Gilbert Gardens is hosting the first annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 4! The garden will be open during normal business hours (9am – 4pm). The first hunt will start at 10am and the last hunt will be at 2pm. Your entry fee includes garden admission, 1 Easter egg hunt, a chance to meet the Easter bunny, free craft tables, as well as other vendors. The price for non-member children is $10.00 and adult entry is $7.00. There is a discounted rate for SGG Members ($5.00 per child & adults free) as well as the opportunity to register early.


“We really wanted to provide a unique take on your traditional community Easter Egg Hunt. Each hunt will be planned for the specific age group! That way children of all ages will be challenged and have fun!” said, Christine Davis, Smith-Gilbert Garden’s Event Manager. “We hope people will enjoy this unique experience as well as a beautiful spring day in our 16 acre Garden.”


There will three group hunts in three separate Garden Collections. This means that each age group will have a hunt that will match their skill level: 0 – 4 year olds will be in the Perennial Garden with tall grass hiding the eggs, our 5 – 8 year olds will get a chance to hunt for eggs along our Woodland Paths, while our 9 – 12 year olds will find it much more difficult to locate eggs in our Conifer Collection. Because of the unique environment of each hunt, pre-registration will be available for each age group/time slot. Due to the limited space, we will not be able to guarantee openings in your age group or time slot on the day of the hunt. All Easter Eggs will be filled with tickets, where children will have the chance to choose their own prizes based on the number of tickets collected from our Prize Table. Also don’t miss the opportunity to take some great family photos in the Garden while the flowers are blooming!
