Boston Parks & Recreation will host a virtual open house Tues., October 27 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. to kickoff a discussion series called "Moakley Talks" which will focus on key aspects of the city's planning process for Moakley Park in South Boston.

The planning series will build on the city's vision for adding climate resilience and new programs to the park.

City officials will provide an update on initiatives that have evolved since their initial 2018 vision plan open house, including a compilation of the feedback that has been received and an overview of the current design.

The Moakley Park of the future would include a new berm to protect against coastal flooding, the elimination of the section of Day Boulevard that runs along Carson Beach, and the creation of a new track and football stadium under a conceptual plan unveiled by city of Boston officials and presented by representatives of its design team last March.
