Union Park's neighborhoods are known for their connectedness. Making an effort to get to know your neighbors will increase the safety of your block. Participating in -- or hosting -- a block party on National Night Out, on the first Tuesday of August, is a great way to start.
Union Park has street barricades that community members can use for block parties, neighborhood, or family events. The street barricades are required by the city when you block off your street or alley -- but ours are a more-affordable option than getting them from Public Works. Barricades only cost $40 and also require a $80 deposit which you will get back after returning the barricades. Reservations are first-come, first-served. To borrow our barricades, you must have an event permit from the city. To reserve this equipment, download and return this reservation form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
