Sunnyside Acres celebrated

An open house celebrating Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest is set for 1-4 p.m. Saturday.

An open house celebrating Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest is set for 1-4 p.m. Saturday (May 30).

The community event is to feature guided walks, bucket-truck rides, crafts, face painting and more.

Sunnyside Acres was dedicated as an urban forest in 1988, and was once home to such wildlife as bears and cougars. Today, black-tailed deer, raccoons and coyotes continue to call it home, along with rabbits, squirrels and 69 species of words.

Walkers, joggers and cyclists frequent its trails, and volunteers dedicate countless hours and effort to weed, plant native species and remove garbage.

Those planning to attend Saturday’s open house – which will go ahead rain or shine – are asked to park at Softball City or on 144 Street, off of 24 Avenue.
