After 35 years, one of the oldest and most active neighborhood association in Raleigh continues to pursue it’s mission to sustain a safe, stable, and attractive living community.
Local residents founded the University Park Homeowners’ Association to preserve the quality of this unique and historic Raleigh neighborhood, while promoting reasonable and desirable growth. UPHA represents residents who live within the area bounded by Wade Avenue on the north, Hillsborough Street on the south, Faircloth Street on the west, and Oberlin Road on the east.
Help up celebrate 35 years of service by welcoming one of the newest, local businesses to our neighborhood. Red Line Beer & Wine opened it’s doors this spring on Horne Street at Hillsborough in the old Post Office building.
Please join us Thursday June 9th between 6 pm and 7:30 pm for summer spirits, food from Groucho’s Deli, graciously provided by the Hillsborough Street Community Service Corporation, and socialize with your neighbors while checking out a few of the many new neighborhood businesses on Hillsborough Street.
Walk on down, or since most of the students are away for summer there’ll be plenty of parking.
The Friends of Oberlin Village are sponsoring a barbecue fundraiser Saturday, May 28th from 5 to 8 pm. Your $10 a plate donation gets you food, live music, and fun and helps preserve and honor the historic Oberlin Village, a community established by freed slaves in what is now part of University park.
You can find the party behind the Interact Building at 1014 Oberlin road, right by the historic Oberlin Cemetery. Bring a chair or blanket. And don’t forget to buy a chance on a beautiful, hand-made quilt being raffled for the benefit of the Oberlin Village project.
