“Auto Museum”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

The Larz Anderson Auto Museum in the park has the most amazing beautiful antique cars. During the summer, car shows can be found here regularly for every kind of auto buff around. It's a place that shold not be missed!

“A large park, largely well-kept grass”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The park does have a pretty water feature, and some garden architecture inherited from when the estate was a private home.

“All time favorite park”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

There are no words to describe the beauty and functionality of this 70 odd acre gem. Rolling green hills, a lake full of fish, 2 baseball diamonds, soccer fields and the awesome car museum and car shows. THE one thing that sucks are the geese...folks need to STOP feeding them, they defecate (TA doesn't like s..t) everywhere!

“Take in all of Boston before your eyes”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

Great open space with lots of private spots. Ice skating and snow sledding in the winter. Lots of dogs, and a ready supply of poop bags. No sidewalks, though, pretty thoughtless. Great for picknics, with charcoal grills all over the lower level of the park. Great playground for kids too.

“Excellent for grilling and hanging out”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

Very spacious and lots of well maintained grilling stations. They offer an excellent online booking service, although it may be considered somewhat pricey...
