The Forest Park Civic Association and the North YMCA will host a free National Night Out celebration on Tuesday, Aug. 2, from 5 pm to 8 pm for everyone in Forest Park East and Forest Park West.
The event will include food, inflatables, an obstacle course, and more fun for residents and families. Local police officers will attend the event to meet residents.
The North YMCA is located at 1640 Sandalwood Pl. near the corner of Karl Rd. and Sandalwood Pl. in Forest Park East.
National Night Out is an annual event that enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. It provides an opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances.
Everyone in Forest Park is encouraged to stop by the event and also to spend the evening outside on your street to gather with neighbors, meet new people, and build community. Many neighbors host a cookout or similar casual get-togethers.
