Friends Groups

Park friends groups, neighborhood associations and other organizations have been instrumental in caring for the network of neighborhood parks, sanctuaries, playgrounds, and green spaces in Brookline. These groups serve as advocates for increased public resources for their parks, and have also successfully raised private donations for park improvements. Many of them organize periodic clean-ups and work days for their neighborhood parks and sanctuaries, often with the support of the Town’s Parks and Open Space Division. All Brookline GreenSpace Alliance member groups in Brookline are listed here alphabetically by their park or organization.
