Block Parties and Play Streets

You can make non-arterial streets great places for community gatherings by temporarily closing the road with a Block Party permit!  With a free and simple Block Party permit, kids (and adults!) in your neighborhood can come together to play and socialize. A block party is a great way to bring together your community and take ownership of streets as public space, especially in areas where parks or private yards are limited.

Play Streets

Recurring block parties, also known as play streets, can occur up to three days per week each week. Play streets are limited to a maximum of 12 hours per week and 6 months per year.
