A Message from Mayor Ron Serpico

Entering Melrose Park, one returns to a time when neighbors talked over the fence, moms watched out for each other’s children, and churches were central to family life. Our tree-lined streets are populated with well-manicured homes. But what you really notice upon entering Melrose Park is the diversity of its residents. Walk down any street and you will be immersed in a tapestry of cultures, each with their unique language, food and customs – Melrose Park is a shining example of the ideal of the “American Melting Pot”.
