At the crossroads of Beacon and Washington Street, Washington Square has a unique identity in the mix of Brookline's commercial neighborhoods.
The neighborhood raised funding to install and renovate the 18-foot Victorian-style restoration clock, which can't be missed. Whether one is seeking a shoe cobbler, running supplies, dry cleaner, grocer, or old-fashioned hardware store, Washington Square has a true small town buzz.
The array of new and long-standing iconic and award-winning restaurants surely entices any adventurous diner. A pleasant counterpoint is nearby Driscoll School Playground.
