Mayor Michelle Wu, in partnership with Downtown North Association, recently announced the return of the Boston Playoff Hub on Canal Street, creating a car-free zone for fans to gather before and during home playoff games at TD Garden. Starting with the first Celtics playoffs home game on Saturday, April 15, approved restaurants and bars will be able to extend their outdoor patios onto the sidewalk on Canal Street. The return of this pedestrian zone builds on Mayor Wu’s commitment to reimagining Boston’s streets and transforming public space in a way that’s enjoyable for residents, small business owners, and visitors.

With both the Bruins and the Celtics in the playoffs this year, we’re excited to give Boston fans a space to safely gather, cheer on their favorite teams, and support our local businesses,” said Mayor Michelle Wu. “I’m grateful to our partners for teaming up with the City to bring back the Playoff Hub, creating a fun experience for our hockey and basketball fans.”

The Playoff Hub will be free and open to the public, providing more space for Boston residents to gather outdoors and celebrate our home teams. Canal Street will be closed from three hours before the start of game time to one hour after the game ends. Extended patios can open three hours before the start of the game and must close an hour after the start of the game. Parking regulations will be posted ahead of the first Celtics playoff game on Saturday, April 15. Vehicles in violation of posted regulations will be towed.
