Nice place to wander around for a summer picnic. There's a small pond that's very picturesque, and a nice park on the other side for kids. Ample space to run around and park. You can also take dogs here but I don't know if its just restricted to certain areas.

Perhaps the only negative about Larz Anderson Park is it can sometime be hard to find a place to park. But it's a lovely place to go, with a tall hill providing a sweeping view of the area, and an excellent playground, and really nice picnic sites -- that you generally have to reserve for with Brookline Recreation.

It is a nice, beautiful park, if you do not mind bird droppings on the grass and sidewalks. Views are great, though. Just check your stroller's wheels before you gold it back to your car,

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
