Mayor Janey’s Neighborhood Coffee Hours extended

Mayor Kim Janey and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department have announced that the 2021 Neighborhood Coffee Hour Series hosted in collaboration with Dunkin’ will continue in local parks with four extra dates added ending on September 8. View the full schedule.

“It has been great meeting residents one-on-one and hearing the variety of issues that concern them,” said Mayor Janey. “With these additional locations in Hyde Park, Jamaica Plain, Charlestown, and East Boston, we’ll bring even more people together to meet with me and my team, while enjoying our parks with their friends and neighbors.”

Mayor Janey’s Neighborhood Coffee Hours are a unique opportunity to speak directly with the Mayor and staff from City departments about open space and other features in their neighborhoods. Through these discussions, and a suggestion box at each site, Mayor Janey looks forward to hearing how the City of Boston can improve upon local parks, public areas, and city services.

Participants will enjoy Dunkin' Iced Coffee and assorted MUNCHKINS® donut hole treats provided by Dunkin’. Fresh fruit is provided by Star Market. In addition, each family in attendance will receive a free flowering plant provided by the Boston Parks and Recreation Department, while supplies last. Residents at the event are also eligible to win a raffle prize from Dunkin’ including Dunkin' swag and gift cards.
