I love this park. Maybe because of the dreadful winter weather every time I go there with my dog there is no one!! It is really well kept and the design is charming. It is perfect for a relaxing walk. At the back of the hill of course there is the sledging which we absolutely adored this winter. It gets... More

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
