Just learned that
Boston Parks Commissioner Antonia Pollak is retiring from her position. I had the good fortune to meet Toni for an informational interview in 2010 after I left my corporate job. Even today I dream of becoming a park ranger. 🙂
The Commissioner shared her career journey and offered a candid assessment of opportunities in the Parks Department and other area organizations focused on parks and open spaces. I was impressed with her knowledge, her warmth and her down-to-earth attitude. Not long after that meeting, I started this City Garden Ideas blog. Thank you Commissioner for your advice and guidance. I wish you well in your next chapter!
The Friends of the Public Garden is joining with Boston Park Advocates to celebrate retiring Parks Commissioner Toni Pollak on February 26, from 5 – 7 at the Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel. Admission is $10, and space is limited. Please rsvp by February 20 at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/thank-you-to-toni-pollak-tickets-6825494237. I’ll be at the party. Please come and celebrate the Commissioner and all she has done to maintain and beautify our city.
