Bexley Block Party Activity Kit - BPAK!


The Bexley Block Party Activity Kit (BPAK) is here!  The Bexley Recreation and Parks Department is excited to introduce the BPAK to our community.  Funded by the Bexley Community Foundation, the BPAK is a trailer full of supplies any Bexley neighborhood street would need to hold a successful BLOCK PARTY! The goal of the BPAK is to encourage Bexley neighborhoods to host block parties by making the process much easier.  We believe in the power of a strong community and are excited about the impact that the BPAK can have in helping to strengthen our community one block at a time.  In addition to providing the much needed supplies to hold a block party, the BPAK will also provide a guide for holding the event from the permitting process to the block party activities and everything in between. 


What is the BPAK?

Block Parties have been as much of a staple of growing up in Bexley as Johnson's Ice Cream, The Drexel Movie Theater, 4th of July Festivities and Bexley Recreation Programming.  As a child, the day your street holds their block party is one of the best days of the year.
