Parkside Community Canvassing

In an effort to continue our work in the community, and to best represent the interests of our residents, the PCA will be conducting a full canvassing of the neighborhood in the coming months.  We are hoping to speak to residents about your concerns and what you would like to see in terms of progress here in Parkside. Whether it pertains to traffic, crime, special events, housing or any other issue we can help with - we want to know your opinion! Through this effort, we hope to personally speak with every resident of Parkside to find out what is most important to each of you and how we can best meet your needs- so look for us at your door later this summer!

Movies in the Meadow Lineup

Are you ready for some free family fun? Every Friday evening in the month of August, the Parkside Community Association hosts the annual "Movies in the Meadow" program. Movies begin just after dusk in beautiful Delaware Park behind the Parkside Lodge.

As always, our movies are rated PG and below and can be enjoyed by the whole family. We will have refreshments available for purchase including popcorn, candy, and ice water. We will also have plenty of surprises in store for our viewers.

So pack your cooler, grab your lawn chairs and join us for an evening like no other under the stars. This event is free to attend but it takes a small community to have a successful series! If you or someone you know would like to volunteer for this event please reach out to the PCA office at 716-838-1240. More info here.
