The city is hosting four game nights at local parks beginning in mid-July to encourage community building.

The game nights are meant to be family-friendly and encourage residents to turn out and meet their neighbors.

 “We think it’s a great time for our neighbors to get together and hang out and have a kind of fun social atmosphere,” Ryna Quiñones, the city’s communications and events manager, said. 

 The free game nights are scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. on July 19 at Hollywood Playground; July 25 at Lakeland Park; Aug. 15 at College Park Woods; and Aug. 22 at Old Town Playground.

 The evenings will feature mostly lawn games, including cornhole and giant versions of Connect 4, Jenga, checkers and chess.

 Quiñones said she hopes at least 100 residents will attend each of the four events.

 “It’s hard to anticipate, having not done this kind of event before, but we would love to see as many residents as possible come out,” she said.
