An Easter egg hunt has been held in Mariposa Park since the mid-2000s.  The hunts were originally organized by Lisa MacDonald with help and contributions from many others.  As Lisa's kids have outgrown this, we have sought other ways to keep it going.

In 2015 Heather Allen, chair and long-time member of Area F Parks Commission, sought to establish the Mariposa Easter Egg Hunt as an on-going project for Leadership students at Pen-Hi.  It was, by all accounts a huge success.

Rules for West Bench Riding Ring Users

The West Bench riding ring is a community facility owned by the RDOS, but maintained primarily by those who use it.  The following is for the guidance of the latter group in particular to spread the responsibility for keeping the ring in good condition and to avoid irritation and unpleasantness among users.

While the ring is a community facility, it was not built for all possible horse activities.  The surface is not suitable for activities such as barrel racing or ones involving moves such as sliding stops, and using it in these ways will do serious damage to the surface, especially the quite expensive material along the boards and out for about six feet (see below ** for description of this material).

Please do not ride or walk your horse across the park grass.  Go up the road at the south end and either enter their or take the path through the trees to the north entrance.

The Area 'F' Parks Commission has prioritized some kind of bathroom and a water station (for drinking, filling water bottles, etc.) for Selby Park.  This could be an outhouse (pictured) or something more elaborate with its own flush toilets.  Of course, flush toilets require a septic fields and a septic field is more money.

This is early stage. More information about costs and alternatives will be posted as it becomes available. At this point we are looking for thoughts or ideas on this.
