Hiawatha Easter Egg Hunt
April 20, 2019
Hiawatha staff and volunteers filled 5,000 eggs that were then placed on the upper field of Guthridge Park, which was sectioned off for the different age groups. With so many participants, the eggs were picked up within a few minutes.
Hiawatha Dog Park Should be Completed by End of 2019
Area pet owners will soon have a new dog park, the first for Hiawatha, to visit with their furry friends. The roughly 2-acre park will be located just south of Boyson Road along the Cedar Valley Nature Trail. It came together thanks to agreements between the City, Linn County and nearby Dave Wright Auto. The collaborative efforts have helped not only provide the city with its first dog park, but keep costs low.
When Dave Wright heard a dog park was the No. 1 amenity the citizens of Hiawatha wanted (based off the Hiawatha Citizen Survey 2016), he thought what a perfect opportunity to give back to the communities that support us and the Subaru mission. Dave discussed the project idea with the City, and from there it snowballed down to a real opportunity, that weather dependent, have completed by the end of the year (2019).
