Having Fun

UCD cares about University City, and we work to unite people around our corridors, businesses, art, parks, and public spaces. Popular signature events such as the 40th Street Summer Series, University City Dining Days, Sustainable Saturdays, and the Clark Park Farmers' Market all serve to bring people together. We work to continually elevate University City's status as a world class neighborhood with world class amenities.
