Enjoy a fun filled day of exploration at the 4th Annual Dinosaur Day at Champion Park!  The event will be held on Saturday, May 12, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and includes free hot dogs and chips, live music, an inflatable playhouse and other activities for the children.  All the activities will be free and open to the public. Commemorative t-shirts will be sold for a reasonable price.
Champion Park is a unique playground for children of all ages to have fun and make new discoveries.  The park, which opened in the fall of 2007, features a covered children’s sand play area with stone casts of dinosaur bones, a blue whale splash and spray, and specially designed boulders for climbing. Last year, a large play area with life size replicas of dinosaur bones was added.  It also has a large picnic pavilion with built-in grills, a fishing area, and a scenic bridge across Brushy Creek.
Funds for the parks came from bonds approved by Williamson County voters in 2000.   Champion Park is named after the Champion family, whose cemetery is located near the park. John Champion, a former Williamson County sheriff, is buried on the site along with several relatives.  The 33-acre park sits along the award winning Brushy Creek Regional Trail, approximately half way between the trailhead at Brushy Creek Road and Great Oaks Drive and the City of Cedar Park’s Brushy Creek Lake Park. Champion Park is open from 7:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
For more information on this event, go to www.wilco.org or contact the Precinct 1 Commissioner Lisa Birkman’s Office at (512) 244-8610, mclark@wilco.org.
