Creek Week Celebration 2015 

SAVE THE DATES SEPT 19-27 FOR CREEK WEEK

Join us for Creek Week, a week-long celebration of our local creeks! Our creeks and rivers are part of a rich and diverse system that provides water supply, wildlife habitat, flood capacity, recreation, and aesthetic values to all who live near or visit them. The health of our creeks and rivers depends on us! 

Creek Week offers many opportunities to enjoy, explore, and care for your creeks, including exciting activities on Family Fun Day! See below for the list of activities so you can join in on the fun!

All children must be accompanied by an adult for all events. Free parking will be available for the Family Fun Day event at the City Hall Parking Lot (100 Santa Rosa Avenue, located across the street from Prince Gateway Park) and at Parking Garage 12 (555 1st Street).
