Harry Downes Field Playground

Perched in the corner of Harry Downes Field is a small, cute, fully-enclosed playground with climbing structure, sandbox, baby swings, and lots of extra tricycles and riding toys lying around. There is an amazing old tree with extensive low-hanging branches that single-handedly provides shade for the entire playground. (I can imagine those branches providing entertainment for older kids as well, though the playground itself is clearly geared toward toddlers).


  1. Are there an public bathrooms near here?

    1. Not that I know of (which doesn't mean there isn't one). Unfortunately, the one deficiency of Brookline playgrounds is the bathroom accessibility. When there is a bathroom that I know of -- I will say so!
