I have been visiting Larz Anserson Park for many years now. Perfect for picnics in the summer and sledding and ice skating in the winter. Best of all..is the perch over which to see the beautiful Boston skyline. A must visit when in Boston-Brookline!

This property used to be part of an old mansion. It is now the go to place in the summer for sun, kite flying, and relaxing while reading. Bring your own seat. In the winter sledding is the sport of choice!
