One of the best features of Brookline is that it is able to give residents a more small town, suburban feel, while being in immediate reach of the entire city of Boston. It has a rich legacy of parks and open space. Larz Anderson Park is Brookline's largest. Featuring the Larz Anderson Auto Museum, home to the oldest collection of cars in America, there is much to see and do in this one spot. Outdoor enthusiasts will also love the large lawns, fields and hills, which are ideal for winter sledding and spring kite flying. The top of the hill offers spectacular views of Boston's skyline and even features an outdoor ice rink that's quite popular among locals. The Brookline area has become a very attractive area to own property, and houses many noteable figures in the community, including football player and local sports hero, Tom Brady.
