“Be S.A.F.E.” (Summer Activities in a Friendly Environment) is a program that supports neighborhoods by extending free supervision hours at designated parks during the evening and employing neighborhood youth. Be S.A.F.E. offers arts and crafts, outdoor games, sports, science activities, computer labs and more. By keeping selected parks activated in the evening hours, residents have many options for recreation and spending time together.

- Admiral Kidd Park, 2125 Santa Fe Ave.
