Urbanites rejoice! This summer
City Hall Plaza transforms into the backyard you wish you had. As part of the Boston Seasons project—a three-year collaboration between the city and local partners to spruce up the Faneuil Hall overlook with regular festivities—the Patios features nine seating areas designed by South End sculptor Jeff Smith using reclaimed industrial metal and locally sourced wood. The space also includes a main pavilion area, which houses Wachusett Brewing Company’s rotating selection of suds, sweet licks from Cambridge’s Honeycomb Creamery and mini golf for visitors to practice their putting. The Patios will also host weekly pop-ups—most notably Wag Wednesdays, showcasing adoptable puppies from Dedham-based Shultz’s Guest House.
