“The best place to view Independence Day fireworks in Boston ... and avoid the traffic!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Great park with lots of green grass and a museum to boot. We took the park in when my spouse wanted to see the July 4 th fireworks but avoid the crowded scene. Our hotel was in Brookline so 10 mins later and we were at the park. The view was great and we had a good time. There are public bathrooms located at the bottom of the hill near the courts. There are two places to park ... At the bottom and the top. If the places are all taken up, park on the East side on the side of the road. The North side has a preschool area or something and you can park there too if after the school is closed.

The venue is fabulous...if you are thinking of having you special day here then do not hesitate. Having just attended the states for friends sins wedding here, k cannot tell you how gorgeous this setting is.

“One of my favorite parks in all of Boston”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Larz Anderson Park is a great place year round. There's a hill from where you get a great view of Brookline, Chestnut Hill and downtown Boston in the distance. They have a fireworks show on 4th of July and the entire park looks amazing even when covered in snow, which is probably why you see so many wedding pictures and photo shoots here.
