Soule Playground (+splash park and winter playspace!)
The Soule Playground, part of the Soule Recreation Center, is fabulous. The main attraction in the summer is the really cool splash park; but the playground right next to it, designed for older kids, is also worth a visit, as is the fully-enclosed toddler playground up the hill. The three combined can easily keep kids occupied for a full morning or afternoon.
It’s worth mentioning that in the winter, the Soule Gymnasium (which you get to by following the path up past the playground and around the school) hosts a Tuesday and Thursday morning playspace that is only $5 for Brookline residents (and $7 for non-residents).I'll try to post a picture once it starts, but they basically set up the gym with slides, riding toys, tunnels, etc., and turn it into a toddler's dream.
