Mayor Walsh Announces 2018 Coffee Hour Series
Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department will host the 19th Annual Neighborhood Coffee Hour Series in local parks citywide from April 25 to July 11.

"Our Neighborhood Coffee Hours give residents the opportunity to come out and spend time in their neighborhood parks and playgrounds, while meeting and talking to City representatives about issues that matter to them, their family, and their community," said Mayor Walsh. "I encourage residents to stop by to chat and enjoy a morning outdoors with coffee, snacks, and flowers from our Parks Department greenhouses."

The Neighborhood Coffee Hours give residents a unique opportunity to speak directly with Mayor Walsh and staff from City departments about open space and other needs in their neighborhoods. 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.

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.

All coffee hours will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., unless otherwise noted. Dates for the full schedule of Mayor Walsh's 2018 Neighborhood Coffee hours are as follows.
