Meet the Neighbors: La Frontera Celebrates Community Spirit at Block Party

With pizza, refreshments and games, the residents in La Frontera recently held a Friday night block party to strengthen and celebrate the sense of community in their southeast Arlington neighborhood.

The City of Arlington even pitched in, bringing out its Block Party Trailer to provide the residents with the supplies they needed for a successful gathering. The trailer, available for free to registered neighborhood groups, is filled with picnic tables, ice chests, water coolers, street barricades, chairs, and other party needs.

During the party, residents talked about why they love their diverse, growing community, which is located near amenities such as Webb Community Park.

“The people are just good people,” said Joram Greber, who has lived in La Frontera for about six years. “We have get-togethers and barbecues. People are just friendly. You like being in that type of community.”

The City of Arlington is proud to feature the La Frontera Homeowners Association in this month’s episode of Meet the Neighbors, a regularly scheduled web and video program that spotlights neighborhoods large and small across The American Dream City.

“Block parties are a great way for our neighborhoods, such as La Frontera, to meet in a casual, fun setting. We love to see Arlington families connect and come to care for each other as well as for the overall health and vibrancy of their neighborhoods,” Senior Planner Sarah Stubblefield said.

Eligible neighborhood groups must submit an application to reserve the Block Party Trailer at least 7 days before their scheduled event. If approved, the trailer will be dropped off the Friday before the party and picked up the Monday after.
