Thank you to the hundreds of dedicated neighbors, stewards, and park friends who came out to volunteer in Brookline Parks in 2023!  Your work helped us maintain trails, plant new gardens and manage invasive species in our parks, playgrounds, and sanctuaries.  We look forward to partnering with the community on new projects and opportunities – please check back in Spring 2024 for updates, and reach out to Alex ([email protected]) for information on how to get involved in volunteer projects or your local park friends group!
