We visiting this park after going into the auto museum and were very pleasantly surprised. We took a walk around the grounds and it was so stunning and well taken care of. There were a couple of sculptures to look at, people flying kites, and a great view (probably better once the leaves fall!) of the Boston skyline. It would... More

This picture is a view you get driving by one side of Larz Anderson Park that I do on a daily basis and on a daily basis it never fails to give me great pleasure to view it through the tall iron gates on this side of the park. There are many reasons to visit this beautiful park from the... More

This is not a crowded park and it does not stand out as much, but it is nice and relaxing. Good if you want to be away from the crowd.

On the top of the hill, there is a beautiful spot that overlooks downtown Boston. There is a ton to do here and you will never get bored! Beautiful park overall!

Hubby & I have been here many times. Nice I work nearby and he can come by and pick me up on my lunch hour break and take a peaceful moment out to relax in our crazy hectic world. This park is absolutely amazing! There's an incredible car museum on one side, an outdoor ice rink for winter fun, a... More

Larz is open all year round.... with a hockey rink, baseball diamonds, a museum, and perfect sledding/running hills. The view of Boston is unbeatable, and in the summer, there are areas to BBQ.

Larz Anderson is a wonderful must-visit park. It almost feels like a secret because if you go there on a weeknight to watch a sunset you might be the only person there. It's a great place to wander, play frisbee or toss a baseball, sit and read with a view of the skyline, fly a kite, etc. Drive to the... More

The online reservation process to reserve BBQ sites in this park is horrible, and to reserve a site (which can accommodate only up to 8 individuals) is $80 for half a day. $80 for access to a picnic table, trash can, and charcoal grill for one half of one day, and that's only IF you can get the website to...

Larz Anderson Park is a wonderful place to roam and play, right on the edge of Brookline and JP. The high hills are great for sledding, kite flying, or watching July 4th fireworks. The small fenced playground is ideal for the 8 and under set. There is a pavilion for picnics and parties (needs to be secured with a permit... More
