Block Parties

Building Safe & Caring Neighbourhoods 

Block parties are a fun way to get to know your neighbour! Getting together with neighbours for a warm evening of fun and food is an enjoyable way to meet and renew connections among the people in your area. Neighbours who know each other, look out for one another. This active participation in the community is a critical element in developing a caring and safe community.
