Mayor Martin J. Walsh has announced that the Boston Parks and Recreation Department’s Annual Neighborhood Coffee Hour Series sponsored by Dunkin’ Donuts will hold an additional date at Myrtle Street Playground on Beacon Hill on Tuesday, June 24, from 9 to 10 a.m.
The Neighborhood Coffee Hours give residents a unique opportunity to speak directly with the mayor about open space and other needs in their neighborhoods. Through these one-on-one discussions and a suggestion box at each site, Walsh looks forward to hearing how the City of Boston can improve upon local parks, public areas and city services.
All participants will enjoy coffee and breakfast treats provided by Dunkin’ Donuts and fresh fruit from Whole Foods Market. In addition, each family in attendance will receive a flowering plant grown in the city’s greenhouses as a gift from the mayor. Residents at the event will also be eligible to win a raffle prize package including a Dunkin’ Donuts gift basket.
The Mayor’s Office of Food Initiatives will be giving away seeds to promote and educate constituents about urban gardening and farming in Boston and the Office of Emergency Preparedness will provide additional giveaways. Further information will be available on City programs from the Boston Public Library, Boston Public Schools, Boston Police Department and Boston Centers for Youth & Families.
Myrtle Street Playground is located at 50 Myrtle St. For more information and updates on possible weather cancellations, contact the Boston Parks and Recreation Department at 617-635-4505 or online at Facebook or Twitter @bostonparksdept.
