LARZ ANDERSON HISTORIC PARK
Larz Anderson Park, the largest park in Brookline, was formerly the Larz Anderson estate. It is composed of large expanses of lawn at the top of the hill, playing fields, and sweeping slopes. At the highest point, where the main house stood, there are exceptional views of Boston. The hill provides opportunities for active and passive recreation that are not available elsewhere in town. The grassy slopes provide a premier spot for sledding, watching sunsets, observing stars, kite flying and simply running on the slopes.
The architecturally significant Carriage House remains and houses the Museum of Transportation. Contemporary uses include a hilltopin the former Italian Garden and picnic areas with grills, located close to the newly restored pond, athletic fields and a playground.The park houses several town offices including the Division of Parks maintenance yard. The community garden has over 80 plots.
