The sun is out, the snow is melting - spring is in the air in Evergreen!
Here are just a few of the best spring activities in Evergreen:
Evergreen Ice Melt
In the next few weeks as the temperature rises we will see Evergreen Lake continue to defrost, saying goodbye to the winter season and welcoming warmer weather! Every year in January, the Evergreen Parks and Recreation Department puts out the infamous Ice Melt Barrel on the frozen lake for the annual competition known as The Evergreen Ice Melt. Participants purchase tickets with the date that they think the barrel will fall through the ice, in hopes of winning the $1000 grand prize. Proceeds from this fundraiser benefit EPRD Special Needs, Evergreen Christian Outreach and the Mountain Foothills Rotary Foundation. Be a part of this Evergreen tradition and place your guess on when the barrel melts through!
Three Sister’s Park
