The mission of the Parks and Open Space Division is to develop a safe, accessible, well maintained network of parks and open space for both passive and active recreation that preserves the historic integrity and cultural significance of Brookline’s landscape for the use, benefit and enjoyment of our visitors and residents. We invite you to explore your parks and open spaces!
What do you want people to know about your business?:
Brookline has a rich legacy of parks and open space, and its citizens greatly value the open space system and recreation programs. Acquisition of park land for conservation and recreation has been an integral part of Brookline's history for over 150 years. As a result, despite its urban character and proximity to Boston, Brookline has a substantial and diverse park system, ranging from small neighborhood playgrounds to large historic landscapes and natural areas.
