Great place to enjoy a couple miles of beautiful nature on a trail that encircles Lake Waban.

Larz Anderson Park Brookline 8.9 km away
#1 of 3 Nature & Parks in Brookline
It's a great place to wander, play frisbee or toss a baseball, sit and read with a view of the skyline, fly a kite, etc. Drive to the top of the hill, park and walk around.
I remember enjoyably sledding down the snowy hills of Larz Anderson Park in the winter, immediately after a snow.

... picknicking, cycling and having a quiet hour for yourself with a book or with your friends, for the park is just alongside the Charles River where you can see many boats, yachts and canoes, and you will share ...
Apart from the historical marvel of this place, the charm and beauty of nature + the boats sailing along the river is definitely something to see if you're visiting town.
