Lake Oswego National Night Out Registration

The City is encouraging residents to get to know their neighbors and we think the best way to do this is to have a party!  Tuesday, August 3, 2021 - National Night Out - is a perfect day for a party and if you’re one of the first 20 neighborhoods to register with the City, your party will receive a visit by a fire truck or police squad car, maybe even a K9!  To make it even better, these fire fighters and police officers will come bearing gifts!

Neighborhood block parties are great because they can be as large or small as you want - invite everyone on your block or expand it to a few block area.  Plan your party at a local park shelter*, in a front yard or driveway, or at the end of a cul-de-sac.  Normally, if a block party will restrict a public street, a City permit is required - but for this night only, the City will waive the requirement for those that register. If you do need to fully close your street, then a permit would still be necessary - but we may have some ideas, so please give us a call.

Everyone enjoys a potluck and BBQ, music, games so invite your friends and neighbors and get to know the people that live around you!
