Grillin’ & Gatherin’ in the Neighborhoods



Safe Summer Nights was created in 2014 when neighbors partnered with the Saint Paul Police Department and the Saint Paul Parks and Rec Department to host a series of fun, FREE gatherings in Saint Paul parks throughout the City.

Safe Summer Nights brings Police Officers, neighbors, kids, and community organizations together for a FREE evening of grilling and gathering. Meals are free and hot off the grill.

There are games for the kids, job fairs, community information, and a host of other surprises. All ages have the opportunity to meet and spend time with Saint Paul Police Officers.


We are excited about this year’s schedule, once again serving many corners of Saint Paul!



Events are Thursdays from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
