Kiwanis Club Easter Egg Hunt March 30, 10 a.m. at Parfet Park

Bring the little ones for the annual Easter Egg Hunt this Saturday in Parfet Park.

Sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Golden, the “hunt” starts at 10 a.m. as children dart about to find the colorful treasures! It doesn’t take more than a few minutes for all the eggs to be gathered up, so don’t be late!

Children up to age 10 are welcome.

Slash Collection at the Splash Through March 30 Daily from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Downed branches from the weekend snowstorm? Golden residents can drop off your tree limbs only for free through Saturday, March 30, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. daily in the Splash Waterpark parking lot (3151 Illinois St). Pay-as-You-Throw customers can also use your compost cart for tree debris that fits in the cart.

If you believe downed tree branches are from city-owned trees, please email [email protected] with the location of the branches.

Calling All Artists!

The Public Art Commission has issued an open call for artists to submit their ideas for new public art installations at New Loveland Mine Park, DeLong Park and on Clear Creek Trail.

The artwork should be a welcoming enhancement to the visual appearance of the site and should appeal to a broad range of people and be uplifting and stimulating to the spirit, intellect, and physical senses. Artistic creativity and interpretation that speaks to Golden’s heritage and natural setting are encouraged.

Artwork will be selected on the basis of creativity, artistic merit, technical proficiency, and relationship to the aforementioned theme and site. Long-term maintenance, durability and impact on park design and operations concerns will be major selection criteria.

Understanding Mental Health: Signs, Symptoms and Tools

Topics: stress, anxiety, depression, self-care

There is a lot of talk about mental health and how important it is, but what does that actually mean? Mental health describes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act, how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. During this presentation, you will learn the basics of mental health, the signs and symptoms of mental health disorders, and how to practice good mental health and connect to care.

The presentation will be an hour long followed by a conversation providing available resources and listening to community needs to help plan future mental health activities.

Sandwiches and chips will be provided.

16th Snow Event of the Season

On Friday, March 8, a quick-moving snowstorm commenced around 7:00 am, dropping about a half-inch of snow over 90 minutes, causing icy conditions city-wide. The streets departments dispatched trucks as the snow began to fall working throughout the duration of the event. Their crews worked a total of 15 hours, plowing or de-icing 180 lane miles, using 14 tons of deicer equaling out to 155.55 lbs. per lane mile.

17th Snow Event of the Season

Over 20 inches of snowfall was measured starting the evening of Wednesday, March 20, with heavier accumulation observed towards the south of the city. To address the inclement weather, the streets team implemented 12-hour shifts commencing at 8 pm on Wednesday and concluding at 2 pm on Friday. In an effort to maintain road safety 1,862 lane miles were plowed or de-iced using 25.75 tons of de-icing materials, averaging 27.65 lbs. per lane mile.
