ROXBURY, MA. – On Friday, August 7th, 2015, Madison Park Development Corporation will host its 14th annual National Night Out Against Crime event. This event will take place at the Edna V. Bynoe playground facilities located on Orchard Park Street in Roxbury from 3pm – 8pm.

Each year National Night Out attracts over 400 residents, youth, police officers, and community leaders – all in the name of peace.

National Night Out encourages our neighbors to stand with local community organizations and make a powerful effort of unity and solidarity. National Night Out is not only known as a day of awareness, but also a day where the Orchard Gardens community comes together as a family in times when it’s needed most. National Night Out 2015 will be filled with games, music, food, and a variety of family-friendly activities. Food and festivities will be provided during the event. Activities include moon bounces, arts and crafts, face painting, and field games.
