Mission

To preserve, protect and enhance the open spaces of Brookline, Massachusetts.

The Brookline GreenSpace Alliance is a nonprofit environmental advocacy and education organization formed in 1987 by a group of concerned citizens to preserve, protect and enhance the open spaces of Brookline, Massachusetts. Since that time, we have grown to be an alliance of over 600 members, and 37 park friends groups, neighborhood associations and community groups working to care for the parks, open spaces and natural resources in Brookline.

We work to achieve our mission by advocating for policies, by-laws and practices that promote the use, health and beauty of our natural environment; by supporting and encouraging the formation of park friends groups, and by providing educational opportunities for the community to learn about and get involved in the protection and stewardship of our precious open space.
