On September 12, 2013, local businesses and residents attended a ribbon-cutting of Boston’s newest Parklet with Commissioner Thomas J. Tinlin in Mission Hill. Boston’s Parklet pilot has started this fall in the Mission Hill and Jamaica Plain neighborhoods, and will be expanded to Allston and Fort Point this spring. The city’s newest outdoor spaces were enthusiastically received with its partners, Lily’s Pasta and Mikes Donuts on hand to dish out a smile and a pastry. Other attendees included Mission Hill MainStreets, fellow business owners, neighborhood students from the Mission Grammar School, the Mayor’s Office and representatives of city agencies. The pictured parklets have been designed, fabricated and installed by local firm, Kyle Zick Landscape Architecture, Inc.
