On Monday Mayor Marty Walsh will take to 89 Brighton Ave. in Allston to announce a new pop up community space aptly known as POP Allston.
According to the City of Boston, the “temporary pop up community space will include an indoor skate park, multi vendor vintage market, pop up DIY Bike shop and more.”
Mayor Walsh will unveil more details about POP Allston at 1 p.m. He’ll be joined by fellow stakeholders Allston Village Main Streets, Orchard Skate Shop, Vivant Vintage, CommonWheels Bicycle Co-Op and Eden Properties.
A website for POP Allston is now live but it’s event calendar is empty at this point, piquing interest as to what kind of happenings could take place there.
The Orchard Conservatory Skatepark will occupy 10,000-square feet of space spread across two floors. It “will be designed, managed, programmed and maintained by Orchard. Conservatory will be free and open to the public for regular hours each week, and Orchard will also use the space as a home for their skateboarding camps, clinics and lessons.”
Further, the Oliver Best Market “will feature vendors of records, vintage and artisan jewelry, clothes, home decor and more. The market will run each Saturday from Noon to 8:00pm. Stay tuned for a list of all vendors.
And the CommonWheels Bicycle Co-Op “will use Pop Allston to provide free skill-sharing workshops, tools and guidance, multilingual resources, gather for social rides, and build the bicycling community—and we encourage participation and support from all who share our vision for better bicycling.”
