There are many opportunities to get involved with Rose Park Neighborhood. Whether you are interested in pedestrian and bicycle safety, public space revitalization, business or alleyway activation, community art programs like ArtWorksLBC (Instagram @ArtWorksLBC), or you just want to bring neighbors together. It takes neighbors coming together to be seen and be heard for positive actions to happen in our area and beyond!
