Auto museum for history lovers, city view for sight seers, grills by the fountain for casual diners, this place has it all. We love to fly our kite there and skate and sled in the winter

Great park with lots of green grass and a museum to boot. We took the park in when my spouse wanted to see the July 4 th fireworks but avoid the crowded scene. Our hotel was in Brookline so 10 mins later and we were at the park. The view was great and we had a good time. There are... More

Larz Anderson Park is a great place year round. There's a hill from where you get a great view of Brookline, Chestnut Hill and downtown Boston in the distance. They have a fireworks show on 4th of July and the entire park looks amazing even when covered in snow, which is probably why you see so many wedding pictures and... More

This not a famous place, but an excellent one to escape from the city.It is full of peace. You can take your family here for picnic or just come by yourself to have a reading here. One of best places for relaxing. .

I was pleasantly surprised by the Park, having recently visited other classic and antique car venues. Larz Anderson was the best. The restored cars dazzle and those that are preserved overflow with history and beauty. They can all be easily seen as the entire experience is on two levels with a variety of rooms. One of the most impressive aspects... More

The Larz Anderson Auto Museum in the park has the most amazing beautiful antique cars. During the summer, car shows can be found here regularly for every kind of auto buff around. It's a place that shold not be missed!

The park does have a pretty water feature, and some garden architecture inherited from when the estate was a private home.

There are no words to describe the beauty and functionality of this 70 odd acre gem. Rolling green hills, a lake full of fish, 2 baseball diamonds, soccer fields and the awesome car museum and car shows. THE one thing that sucks are the geese...folks need to STOP feeding them, they defecate (TA doesn't like s..t) everywhere!
