In The Spotlight

Easter Egg Hunt – Friday, March 30th

Grab your basket and join the Easter Bunny at Andrews Park to gather some eggs on Friday, March 30th! The Easter Bunny will have over 15,000 eggs outside at Andrews Park for children to “hunt” up. Eggs will contain candy and a few eggs will contain special tickets redeemable for a small Easter surprise. This family activity is for Children ages 9 and under. No preregistration is required for this event. This Easter Egg hunt will start promptly at 11:45 a.m. Thank you to Riverway Church for sponsoring this event!

Children ages 4 and under join us at 11:00 a.m. for a scaled down version of our traditional egg hunt. Bundle up those little ones and bring them to Andrews Park to give them a chance to find their lucky egg. Don’t forget to bring a pail or basket to put the eggs in! No preregistration is required for this event.

These events are free and held outdoors. Please arrive early as these events will start at the times listed.

Support Seniors & Youth Programs

The City of Champlin’s Parks and Recreation Department (with assistance from our Finance and Utility Department) are offering a unique way that residents can support youth and senior activities and programming opportunities within our city.

Starting in January 2017, residents will be sent in their Utility billing, a request to enroll in the Champlin Round-Up Program.  With this program, a resident utility customer can decide to round up their utility bill to the next highest dollar value.  The most a customer can provide in one year is $11.88, but accumulated totals from all participants will go to offset costs associated with providing recreational opportunities for both the youth and seniors of our community.

This fund will be used to supplement various youth and senior activities that often do not run because the event or function would normally be too costly to participate in. The Champlin Round-Up Program is an opt-in program, and one in which we hope you will consider becoming an active participant.

If you would like to opt-in to this program before requests are sent with the Utility billing, please send an email request to

Thank you for your supporting the City of Champlin’s Parks and Recreation Department! View complete information here.
