Derby Street Shops continues to grow its outdoor community event programming with the launch of its new green space, Derby St. Green in partnership with South Shore Health. Located between REI and Kohl’s, the newly created space offers an extensive lineup of events and activities now through October 31. The all-encompassing schedule includes complimentary fitness classes like Oh Baby! Fitness Stroller Class and the lululemon Run Club, Wellness Checks hosted by South Shore Health, and a variety of kid-friendly activities such as sing-alongs with the South Shore Conservatory and Story Time with Barnes & Noble. The schedule also features special one-time events including the Derby St. Block Party and Bubbles & Bubbles. All events are open to the public and held at Derby Street Shops: 98 Derby Street, Hingham,

“In partnering with South Shore Health, we are able to offer even more family fun, fitness, and seasonal events into the mix! We started using the space for our event programming last year and found that local families enjoyed it as a safe place for children to play and partake in popular happenings such as our music series, Derby Street Sounds. We've utilized it for several outdoor events like our annual Back to School Picnic and Boo Bash and it is also the home to our Woody Wall which just debuted its second iteration. We look forward to welcoming the community to the new green space all season long. ” says Sherri Schuler, General Manager of Derby Street Shops.

“South Shore Health is committed to redefining world-class care in the communities we serve,” says Gene E. Green, MD, MBA, President/CEO of South Shore Health. “The new green space, now known as Derby St. Green in partnership with South Shore Health represents our continued commitment to serve the health and wellness needs of Hingham and all of the surrounding communities.”
