You’re invited! The Tot Lot playground at University Village Park is celebrating its “first birthday”

University City resident Jason Palkovic, Sellstate Realty, in collaboration with the Rec Council’s Carol Parham, are hosting a Family Movie Night in the Park on Saturday, August 11, at the University Village Park located at 7150 Florey Street. This event marks the park’s “first birthday” celebration of the installation of the Tot Lot playground.

“Gordon and Carol Parham along with the Standley Park Recreation Council were instrumental in the planning and installation of the Tot Lot and I was deeply honored when Carol reached out to collaborate on this event,” Jason says.

The fun starts at 4pm with a bounce house provided by neighbor Bobby Rife and kid friendly games from the community. Disney Pixar’s Coco will begin at dusk and will play on a 21-foot inflatable outdoor movie screen. These types of neighborhood events create a great opportunity for neighbors to get together, meet and form relationships, and most importantly have FUN.

This event will benefit the San Diego Food Bank; please donate one canned food item per family. Please see the ad in this issue for more information.
