Mayor Martin J. Walsh will join the Boston Parks and Recreation Department in hosting the 17th Annual Neighborhood Coffee Hour Series in local parks citywide from May 6 to June 17. The site for this year’s event will be at the Myrtle Street Playground, 50 Myrtle Street on May 21
The Neighborhood Coffee Hours give residents a unique opportunity to speak directly with Mayor Walsh. Through these discussions and a suggestion box at each site, Mayor Walsh looks forward to hearing how the City of Boston can improve upon local parks, public areas, and city services.
“These Coffee Hours provide me with a great opportunity to get out and meet residents one-on-one,” said Mayor Walsh. “If someone has an issue that we can help with, would like to know more about city services, or just want to come out and have some coffee and refreshments in one of Boston’s local parks with neighbors, we extend a warm welcome.”
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 Mayor Walsh. Residents at the event will also be eligible to win a raffle prizes from Dunkin’ Donuts. Information will be available on City programs from the Boston Public Library, Boston Public Schools, Boston Police Department, and Boston Centers for Youth & Families.
