National Night Out

National Night Out is an annual nationwide event, being held on Aug 2nd, that encourages residents to get out in the community, holding block parties and getting to know their neighbors as a way to encourage crime prevention. It's a great way to promote community-police partnerships and enjoy a Menlo Park summer evening surrounded by friends and family. National Night Out events are being held throughout the City of Menlo Park and you can find a listing of some of the locations on the City calendar
