Park Stories Project

Share Your Stories of Brookline's Parks!

Join us in a digital initiative entitled the "Park Stories Project" to collect memories, anecdotes and photos from the community about your favorite Brookline parks. 

Did you get married in Larz Anderson Park? Did you hit your first homerun at Robinson Field? Do you enjoy a regular jog or walk through Olmsted Park? 

Our goal is to create an archive of the treasured memories and personal connections that define these open spaces. The stories captured will inform future parks projects and public art installations, including the upcoming installation of three murals on utility boxes in our Parks. We encourage you to share your story today! Submissions will be collected until May 1st. 

Sharing your story is a free and easy process. We accept: written stories, pictures, videos, and/or audio files. 

Please note that submissions will be considered public record and may be copied and/or distributed without permission. Flyer Park Stories Banner showing park photos and events.
