Block Clubs

A block club is a group of neighbors living within one or more city blocks who are committed to knowing one another in order to socialize, address common concerns, promote communication and improve block safety. Many block clubs exist in Highland Park. Check out the map and email us at if your block club isn’t on the map. If no block club exists yet for you and your neighbors, we have resources available to support you in starting a block club.
