Eagle Creek is celebrating its 50th Anniversary!
Here’s the skinny! Celebrate all year long as we toast to 50 years of outdoor fun at Eagle Creek Park! We’re hoping to raise $50,000 in our 50th year to help promote, protect, preserve and enhance the park for another 50 years!
The park was officially dedicated on June 10, 1972, and park staff have planned 12 months of far out activities, challenges, and events to bring park visitors together in honor of the milestone. Use the hashtag #ECP50th on social media to show us how you’re celebrating, and follow along with the park on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
Celebrate our 50th by getting some merch!
Grab some 50th anniversary merchandise off of our Spring Site by going to https://eagle-creek-park-50th.creator-spring.com/ There you’ll be able to purchase hoodies, t-shirts, tank tops, and even a fanny pack! How cool!
Grab a journal and boogie down!
