I’m Leah Cypess, author of young adult fantasy novels (including Mistwood and Death Sworn) and mom of 4, located in Brookline until recently. I’m also somewhat of a Type A personality, which is why in 2013 I decided that I should visit every playground in Brookline & its environs with my kids. I'm keeping a record here in the hope that other parents will find it useful.

Minot Rose Garden
Minot Rose Garden playground! One of the best in Brookline. It’s a whole city block, including
a gated-off dog park,* three levels of climbing apparatuses, a sprinkler, a sand
box, and a large area of grass and walkways next to the rose garden. People
often leave slightly damaged or outgrown toys there for playground use, so the
sandbox always has toys in it and there are lots of little walkers, tricycles,
etc. The only downside is that it can get extremely (EXTREMELY) crowded in the
afternoons. But in the mornings it’s close to perfect.
* Apparently not officially a dog park, but I think most people don't know that.
