From the Coral Springs City Commission:
Coral Springs business owners, residents, and community leaders are soaring toward a smooth spring, blooming with family-friendly happenings and special events.
March is Women’s History Month, a time to highlight the accomplishments of leading ladies in our community. Coral Springs is proud to position women for lifelong success and personal fulfillment. Follow along on the city’s social media channels to meet some of the marvelous women in our community.
Spring Break is here! Residents can make a splash at the new Splash-n-Play at Betti Stradling Park, which is now open. Cypress Water Park will also be open through spring break week. Located on Coral Springs Drive across from Cypress Park, the water park features a unique clover-shaped pool, a splash pad, a water playground, and a twisting water slide. Residents can visit the park from Saturday, March 18, to Sunday, March 26, with daily hours from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. A full list of city park details and hours can be found at CoralSprings.gov/parks.
As the year “marches” on, this month will feature various family-friendly events and activities. Worldfest celebrates the diversity of our community with ethnic foods, cultural performances, and art activities for kids. The event will be held on Saturday, March 4, at City Hall. Families can have a blast with free ice skating, games, and more at Game Night at the Den on Wednesday, March 22, at 6 p.m. at Panthers Ice Den. Admission is free.
The popular Hoppin’ Into Springs egg hunt bounces back into the city on Saturday, April 1, for ages 3 to 8. This event is for Coral Springs residents only, and pre-registration is required. Learn more at CoralSprings.gov/events.
