DPHD Neighborhood Watch Program
Neighborhoods with Neighborhood Watch (NW) are safer neighborhoods. We've had one NW training this year and hope to have another via Zoom before the end of the year. If you are interested, you can enter your information on our Neighborhood Watch Survey by clicking the button below.
The next "in person" NW training will be held at the District 3 Community Room at 6PM on Tuesday, October 24th. If you would like more information about this meeting you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Driving Park 2023 Fall Festival
Thanks to a perfect fall afternoon, we had a great turnout. Lots of fun - Henry the Hot Dog Man provided food, a few people and lots of kids wore costumes. Kids and adults won prizes in the many competitions. What a great way to meet new neighbors and spend time with old friends.
Driving Park Historic District 2023 Annual Meeting

On Thursday, August 5th we had our first live event in 2 years. Lots of neighbors came out and enjoyed a summer evening with dogs, burgers, lots of sides and...snow cones. Thanks to Chris and Becca for sharing their parkway - it was the perfect location. And many thanks to Gretchen and Tom Sickler and Natacha Kiler for all the planning and preparation. Neighbors making a difference for neighbors!
