Curtis Hall Community Center Pool Reopening September 2

The Curtis Hall Pool will be one of four indoor city pools reopening to the public starting Sept. 2. "As we head towards the end of summer, I am pleased we are able to open up indoor swimming options for our residents," said Mayor Marty Walsh. "[Boston Centers for Youth and Family] has spent a lot of time making sure that safety protocols are in place so that we can open these additional recreational facilities within the current COVID-19 guidelines. I encourage residents to take advantage of these options and continue to take all the precautions: wearing face coverings when out, keeping your distance from others, and washing your hands."

Support Local Children in Need by Donating to Cradles for Crayons; Curtis Hall Drop-off

Cradles to Crayons is partnering with Boston Centers for Youth & Families and Boston Children’s Museum to call on Boston residents to participate in a city-wide collection of children’s essentials. As communities take on spring cleaning and clear out their closets this season, the Boston-based nonprofit asks to keep the collection in mind and donate any new and gently used clothing, shoes, books, and small toys at one of the participating drop-off points throughout the city. The drive will culminate in the fun, hands-on Boston Collect & Sort volunteer event at Boston’s Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology Auditorium on May 4. Collections are ongoing through May 3 at the following drop-off locations:
BCYF Curtis Hall Community Center – Jamaica Plain
20 South St. Jamaica Plain, MA 02130
