National Night Out at Grundy Park Brings Together Neighborhood

The San Bruno gathering joined others throughout the country to help make communities safer by raising crime prevention awareness.

A group of residents on Tuesday celebrated National Night Out in San Bruno at Grundy Park with food, good conversation and face painting.

The event, which was held in cities throughout the country, serves as a way to get people out of their homes and meet each other with the common purpose of making communities safer by raising crime prevention awareness.

Councilman Rico Medina, Police Chief Neil Telford and Police Lt. Geoff Caldwell also stopped by to hang out with the group for a while.

San Bruno Patch caught up with some of the participants at the Grundy Park event and, in the spirit of the event, asked them all the same question: "What more do you think needs to be done in San Bruno to prevent neighborhood crime?"

We attended last night and had a great time meeting our neighbors. We have only lived in San Bruno for a year, but we love it!

My wife and I had a nice time with our kids meeting neighbors. We're grateful for the sense of community in San Bruno and look forward to supporting more events that pull us together. Love the Harris'! Face painting with our kids rock!
