The sauna is closed 🙁

Thank you for an amazing 6 weeks on City Hall Plaza! We will be passing off our learnings to the city and other local groups so that they can work to support more projects like this in the future. If you have other ideas for winter activations you would like to see, let us know! We hope to be back next year with something even bigger and better!

People play corn hole and eat at tables in front of the Winter City Sauna on city hall plaza.

About the project

In order to activate Boston’s public spaces in the winter and increase connection and happiness, we brought a mobile pop-up sauna to Boston City Hall Plaza for 6 weeks. By providing a source of warmth and an activity that encourages conversation, the Boston Public Sauna pilot program creates vibrancy and leads to stronger, healthier communities year-round. This program is supported in part by the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture.
