St. Mary’s County Recreation & Parks Announce Surprise Egg Hunt Starting TODAY!

March 30, 2021

The 38th Annual Easter Egg Festival may not be back as normal, but Recreation and Parks was able to have the Easter Bunny hide eggs in our parks! The hunt is on starting…now.

Simply visit any number of parks and facilities provided in the list below and search for bags of eggs! Egg bags are hidden in plain sight around seating areas, playgrounds, sporting areas and pavilions. Some bags contain a golden egg for an extra prize from the Easter Bunny and many local businesses in St. Mary’s County.

If your bag has a golden egg, simply follow the directions inside the egg to claim your prize.

Parks & Museum grounds where eggs are hidden:

  • Cardinal Gibbons Park
  • Cecil Park
  • Chancellor’s Run Regional Park
  • Chaptico Park
  • Dorsey Park
  • Drayden African American Schoolhouse
  • Fifth District Park
  • John Baggett Park
  • Lancaster Park
  • Leonard Hall Recreation Center grounds and the Weick Playground
  • Old Jail Museum
  • Piney Point Lighthouse Museum
  • St. Clements Island Museum
  • Seventh District Park

Egg hunters, please take note that all eggs are located outdoors. We ask that you please limit your hunt to one bag of eggs per child. We want as many families as possible to enjoy this experience.

Eggs do contain small toys that are not suitable for children under the age of three.

Please share your Egg Hunt experience by posting your photos to #StmarysEggHunt2021 and tag St. Mary’s County Recreation & Parks to be entered into a drawing for a $50 R&P gift card. For park locations and directions, please visit our website at
