Summer Picnic at SW Corridor Park
August 1 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Hello all, please join us for our annual summer picnic for a relaxing evening of great food, networking, and discussion on parks in around Boston and the importance of urban parks. The picnic will be held at SW Corridor Park, which is located across from Stony Brook Station along the Orange Line.
We will start the evening speaking about the role of parks in an urban setting, the significance they have when it comes to reducing heat islanding effect and much more. Later, we will have some delicious and healthy food from Wholeheart Provisions and celebrate the summer and open space with some lawn games. We will then have closing remarks by EPMA Chair Lindsey Machamer from Pare Corp. who will talk about parks and stormwater management and some ongoing projects at her firm.
