Rent a Barricade, Tent or Recycling/Compost Bins

Union Park's neighborhoods are known for their connectedness. Making an effort to get to know your neighbors will increase the safety of your block. Participating in -- or hosting -- a block party on National Night Out, on the first Tuesday of August, is a great way to start. 

BARRICADE RENTAL

Union Park has street barricades that communit

y members can use for block parties, neighborhood, or family events. The street barricades are required by the city when you block off your street or alley -- but ours are a more-affordable option than getting them from Public Works.

  • Barricades only cost $40 and also require a $80 deposit which you will get back after returning the barricades.
  • Reservations are first-come, first-served.
  • To borrow our barricades, you must have an event permit from the city.

To reserve this equipment, download and return the reservation form to wako@unionparkdc.org.

BLOCK PARTY TENT RENTAL

Union Park has a 10x20 tent that the community can rent for block parties, neighborhood or family events as well. 

  • The tent rental costs $80 and also requires a $100 deposit which you will get back after returning the tent undamaged.
  • Reservations are first-come, first-served.

To reserve this equipment, download and return the reservation form to wako@unionparkdc.org.

RECYCLING/COMPOST CONTAINERS

 We have 3 compost containers and 4 recycling containers that Union Park community members can reserve out free of charge. Please email wako@unionparkdc.org if you are interested in reserving any combination of these containers.
