Green Town

Page

Green Town is an effort of the Codman Square Neighborhood Council and the BOLD Teens to Green Boston one neighborhood at a time.  The focus area of the initiative is the former Cronin Playground (Dr. Loesch Family Park).

We are working with the City of Boston to “reduce green house gas emissions 25% by 2020” and “give special attention to segments of the Boston community that are more vulnerable because of lack of resources, poor health, age, or other reasons”.  Sparking Boston’s Climate Revolution Summary Report April 2010
