Friends Groups

Park friends groups, neighborhood associations and other groups have been instrumental in caring for the network of neighborhood parks, sanctuaries, playgrounds and green spaces in Brookline. Many of these groups have advocated for increased public resources for their parks, and have also successfully raised private donations for park improvements. Many of them also organize periodic clean-ups and work-days for their neighborhood parks and sanctuaries. All Alliance member groups in Brookline are listed here alphabetically by their park. or organization.
