Beautiful things to see on a stroll, and the kids love seeing the Anderson family's old cars from years ago - one even had a toilet for long trips! Auto lawn... More

went here as a kid many times for school trips. It's still just as beautiful, peaceful and clean as it ever was. The car museum located in the park is excellent, brings you to another time and place. Really nice place.

Every year our club has a cookout/picnic at The Shelter in the park. It is a very popular venue and we have to reserve it in January for Labor Day (there's also a substantial fee). However there are many places to picnic that do not have those requirements. The landscaping and maintenance are excellent. The only low point are the... More

Great option for the automobile and history afficionado , for special events and just to see a wonderful view of Boston. There are cars with attributes from back when that you would not expect - a great green expanse for tented events as well.

I go here with my family, I go here to take photos for my business and the park is always beautiful. In the winter there is an outdoor ice rink with a snack bar and ice skate rentals, if needed. They have a playground, barbecue grills to rent. The top has views of Boston. There is also an auto museum... More

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.
