About the Park


This is Brookline’s newest park, and the first new park added in over 25 years. The park includes a regulation sized, multi-purpose synthetic turf field, a playground with play equipment for all ages, a covered shelter with picnic tables, benches, recreational pathways that connect to Lost Pond Sanctuary, landscaping with new plantings, restored wetlands, a comfort station, and a parking area. Skyline Park is situated on the top and sides of a gently sloping hill, allowing for scenic views of the surrounding area. View information on picnic shelter permits.


Park History


The location is the site of the former town landfill, the Newton Street Landfill, which was capped and the land reclaimed for a public park. Funding for the new park was provided by the Town of Brookline, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Urban Self-Help Program, and the Brookline Travel Soccer Club. The park was named Skyline Park and was officially opened in 2008.

Deed / Title / Restrictions


There is an access agreement with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation that allowed part of the park to be built on their property.
