Zoo_trip_flyerEven as the Easter Bunny preps for the fast-paced frolic that is the annual Easter Egg Hunt at Red Bank’s Eastside Park (going on at high noon this Saturday, March 19), the folks at Red Bank Parks and Recreation have a couple of other springtime goodies for the finding, if local residents know where to look.

The hours are counting down for the March 15 deadline to register for a Spring Break Family Trip, to Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange. Scheduled for the morning and early afternoon of Wednesday, March 30, the bus excursion offers local children and their adult caregivers an opportunity to visit the park and nature center that’s been a favorite of New Jersey families for generations. A per-person cost of $22 includes round trip transportation (attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch, as the park’s food facilities are currently closed due to renovations). Space is limited and time is running out, so click the graphic for details on signing up — and read on for more.
