The Boston Licensing Board today approved a license for Chill on Park, an ice cream shop at 142 Park St. in Fields Corner.
The shop will offer locally sourced products from Puritan Ice Cream in Roslindale. It will also serve coffee and pastries.
At a hearing yesterday, manager Wendy Issokson told the board that the store would work with the Dorchester Boys and Girls Club and Tina Chery, founder of the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute and Mother's Day Walk for Peace, to find local kids to staff the shop in the summer.
The mayor and at-large City Councilor Ayanna Pressley both formally supported the license request.
