The City of Dallas started its Summer of Safety with a two-day outdoor festival at Old City Park, according to a report by Fox 4 KDFW:

“I think it’s awesome. We live just a few blocks away. This green space has been underutilized for a while, so I think reviving it will be awesome,” said Naima Hill.

“Hill brought her 5-year-old son Kade.

“Approximately 2,000 kids who are attending summer camps across Dallas County were bused to the free event.

“Here in the City of Dallas we believe in investing in our youth, making sure that they’re learning, making sure that they’re engaged but, more importantly, making sure that they are safe,” said Dallas City Councilman Jesse Moreno.

“The event is part of the third annual Summer Safety Program, designed to keep young people engaged during a time of year when crime historically goes up.

“Parks and Rec is leading the way. Centers are open with different activities.

“City spray centers are available for family play, aquatic centers will be open for kids to learn to swim and all-access passes will give families free admission to all museums in the city.”
