Chill on Park

Founded in May 2015, the Zagat-rated Chill On Park has become a stalwart gathering place in the Fields Corner neighborhood, providing not only ice cream but internships, children’s story hours, birthday parties, and valuable employment opportunities and skills for Dorchester’s youth community. Chill On Park strives to ensure that all of the product sold in the shop is locally sourced. All 32 flavors of ice cream are made by Puritan Ice Cream in Roslindale, the coffee is roasted by Karma in Sudbury, and baked goods are provided by Haley House Bakery Cafe in Roxbury. Waffle cones are made in house at Chill On Park, and on Tuesday enjoy an ice cream taco made from these cones!   Chill on Park is open Mon – Thurs: 12pm-8pm  and Fri-Sun: 12pm-9pm
