Around the Block: Upcoming Fun at Union Park

Posted on: October 24th, 2017 by cea No Comments


Union Park is filled with fun events around the calendar! Check out some of our fall season favorites below.



Battle of The Blocks

The “Battle of the Blocks” event is a yearly favorite, bringing all families in each block together to compete for a winning title. Neighborhood blocks go head-to-head in a series of family-friendly games, races and fun. 

Residents are not playing around! They get themselves prepared for this event with matching shirts for their block and all!

A tradition that started in the 1800’s in Munich Germany has helped form Union Park’s community event culture for three years in a row. Oktoberfest brings hot air balloon rides, ice cream trucks, delicious foods and plenty of good beer.  

Even our youngest residents can enjoy the fun––inflatable slides, bounce houses, face painting and splash pad fun are all abundant. This community favorite truly brings the spirit of the fall season to Union Park.



Halloween Block Party  

The Union Park Halloween Block Party is another favorite for our little ones. Trick-or-treating, costume contests and candy galore are amongst the many activities.




The Halloween extravaganza takes place alongside the community pool which allows our residents to join in the fun and relax while enjoying family time. The buffet of ghostly foods and bloody drinks as well as homemade goods is always a hit! We love seeing our residents taking a day off from cooking to enjoy quality time with loved ones.

Metro Places hosts this event as a way of thanking the wonderful Union Park residents who make our community one of the best places to live in Florida.
