It’s child’s play in Dorchester on Saturday – the city will close off Coleman Street to traffic and open it to kid-friendly fun. From 2 to 6 p.m., the street will become a “Playway”:

Activities for children of all ages (such as hula hoops, badminton, bike rodeo, jump rope, bean toss, chalk and mural art, etc) will be brought to the street and there will be group activities (salsa or other dances lessons, music performances). For more information, contact Jhana Senxian, email@example.com, 617-930-6508.

o Schedule a Boston Shines event or other local cleaning/greening activity
o Hold a block party or a Playways Day
o Organize a Neighborhood Watch group Continue Reading »
