Santa sets up shop at the Roxborough Pocket Park on November 29th for the 2nd annual Roxborough Tree Lighting.

Farewell 2019! Just before we celebrate the New Year, it’s time to take a look back at the most memorable moments in Roxborough.

Our town is a place with roots. It is at once a place with a rich history, a place where families can set down their own roots, and with so much green space, a place with literal roots. We have assembled our most memorable photographs from the past year that capture some of these qualities.
