Hopewell Valley Safety Town

Safety Town is a community project designed to provide hands-on safety education for children.

A realistic, child-sized town with miniature streets, buildings, crosswalks and working traffic lights, Safety Town offers an authentic setting for bicycle, pedestrian and vehicular safety instruction. Safety Town is a one-week summer program offered to rising Hopewell Valley School District Kindergartners. The program is directed by YMCA staff members with assistance from local youth volunteers and features visits by police, firefighters, paramedics and other local first responders.
