City of Lewisville helping neighborhoods ‘Rock the Block’

Lewisville is helping bring neighbors together by providing a “Rock the Block” trailer that residents can reserve for free to assist with a neighborhood block party.

Events such as this give residents a chance to eat, play, and meet each other in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. Neighbors that know one another and have shared interests can become a stronger community.  

The “Rock the Block” trailer comes stocked with folding tables, folding chairs, water coolers, ice chests, trash and recycling bins, party games, a first aid kit and sidewalk chalk. The trailer is available for use for block parties that take place on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Once reserved, a city crew will drop the trailer off at a specific location and return to pick it up on Monday.

The “Rock the Block” trailer is an initiative of the “Thriving Neighborhoods” Big Move of the Lewisville 2025 vision plan. The goal of that Big Move is to create neighborhood-specific reinvestment strategies and to work with neighborhood leaders on ways to get residents more involved in the neighborhood.

Reservations can be made for any time of year. The reservation process includes completing the necessary forms to ensure everyone complies with city ordinances and rules. Other restrictions may apply if residents want to do something outside the basic guidelines, such as bring in a food truck.   

Any resident interested in reserving the “Rock the Block” trailer can do so by calling Neighborhood Services Director Yolanda Wilson at 972-219-3736, or by emailing her at ywilson@cityoflewisville.com.
