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”.
