Boston Shines

Spring Neighborhood Clean-up


Spring is coming and it's once again time for Boston Shines! This annual, city-wide clean-up has become a staple in the City of Boston, and we look forward to continuing this wonderful tradition with Mayor Walsh's Administration.


The main clean-up day in your neighborhood will be Saturday, 03 May 2014 from 10:00AM to 2:00PM.  Your neighbors will meet at Sharon's Park to concentrate their efforts on putting a shine on Sharon's Park, Paul's Triangle, Dorchester Avenue and Boston Street.


If you would like to help create a more beautiful neighborhood to enjoy at this volunteer event, please sign-up here or join the Beautification Committee


Your assistance will be welcome and appreciated.
