All Boston youth and families are invited to join us for a family-friendly bike party to celebrate the opening of Bike Town at Moakley Park, a new place in Boston where kids can practice riding, rolling, and walking in a fun and safe environment. The celebration will take place at Moakley Park across Day Blvd from the Carson Beach Bath House and feature:

  • Free ice cream and music
  • Free bike and helmet rentals for kids
  • Bike demonstrations and activities
  • A short ribbon-cutting ceremony

This event is a collaboration between the Mayor's Office of New Urban Mechanics, the Mayor's Office of Early Childhood Education, the Boston Parks Department, and Boston Harbor Now.

ABOUT BIKE TOWN

Biking helps kids explore their neighborhood, have fun, and grow. In an effort to make Boston a more family-friendly city and increase road safety for children, the City of Boston is creating fun and safe places where kids can develop their bike riding skills and road safety awareness. Bike Town is a small-sized street network, sometimes called a “traffic garden”, where kids can learn and practice riding bikes in a safe, car-free and delightful environment. These miniature streets can help:

  • Teach children essential bike-riding skills to promote active and safe transportation
  • Educate community members, especially children, about road safety practices
  • Increase children’s confidence in their ability to safely navigate city streets

Suffolk Downs Documentary

Join us on May 16, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the East Boston Public Library for the screening of “Suffolk Downs: A Race Through Time”.

May 16, 2024
2024-05-16T17:30:38 - 2024-05-16T19:30:00

Join us on May 16, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the East Boston Public Library for the screening of “Suffolk Downs: A Race Through Time”, a documentary film about the history of Suffolk Downs. The HYM Investment Group, owner and developer of the site since 2017, has created a film that details the history of the horse racing site over the decades, the activations happening onsite today, and the plans for the future as redevelopment begins.

The film begins with the building of Suffolk Downs, the legalization of betting in Massachusetts and the chronicled rise and fall of horse racing. Stories are told about the owners of the track over the years, the horses and jockeys that raced there, the concerts and events that drew in the crowds, the economic viability of the site over the years, and the legacy this site will always have. Interviews are captured with jockeys, employees of the racetrack, writers, journalists, the former Mayor of Revere, and the current property owner and developer. Jumping ahead, the film transitions to the use of the site today, following the final race in June of 2019, and The HYM Investment Group’s vision for a diverse community that will continue to develop for the next 15-20 years.

Guests are encouraged to arrive between 5:30 - 6 p.m.. The screening itself will begin promptly at 6 p.m. with a brief speaking program.
