Time: 9:30 am – 10:30 am

Where: Christopher Columbus Park
Atlantic Ave., North End – Playground area


      Mayor Thomas M. Menino and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department invite local residents to enjoy informational Coffee Hours in various neighborhood parks throughout the city.  The annual series, sponsored by Dunkin’ Donuts, will take place from May 2 to May 17.

            The Coffee Hours give residents a unique opportunity to speak directly with Mayor Menino about open space and other needs in their neighborhoods.  Through these one-on-one discussions and a suggestion box at each site, Mayor Menino 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.   In addition, each family in attendance will receive a flowering plant grown in the city’s greenhouses as a gift from Mayor Menino.  Residents at the event will also be eligible to win a “Day on the Town” raffle prize package including a Dunkin’ Donuts gift basket, Macy’s gift certificates, Swan Boat rides, and free parking downtown for the day compliments of the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority.
