Join the conversation—Marley Park Collective Hour

Collective Hour home slide

Over the last year, Marley Park Leadership has been brainstorming new ideas to engage all Marley Park residents to get involved in our community.

One outcome was a new event, Marley Park: Connected. Launched in the spring of 2016, this unique event features a showcase of community programs and clubs. We plan to host this event twice a year.

Another outcome expanding Leadership’s monthly gatherings to all residents, broadening the community input and cross-neighborhood collaboration. But this wouldn’t be any regular gathering. We added some fun twists, and Marley Park Collective Hour was established.

Everyone is invited. So come join us to share your passion for community life in Marley Park. It’s light fare, tasty beverages and friendly conversation. And the best part—you get to be part of the legacy building process for Marley Park. We believe that together we can create collective memories one hour at a time through neighborly collaboration, storytelling, program planning and more.

Together we will honor our time and our ideas. You can expect our 60 minutes together to start promptly, be jam-packed and interactive. Got kids? Children are welcome; kid friendly snacks, games and activities are provided.

So far our Collective has discussed Arizona summer destinations, as well as toured the West Valley Arts Council’s gallery, Arts HQ, and brainstormed ways residents can cultivate arts/culture/creativity in our community. Each month we hear updates from the Marley Park Leadership working committees and learn about new ways we can get involved.

If you haven’t participated yet, come join us next time. Look for our upcoming Collective Hour on the Marley Park community events calendar. We ask that all attendees RSVP so our team can prepare appropriately. For questions and information contact
