Griggs Park is a beautiful historic neighborhood that was once a wetland close to the downtown area of Brookline, MA. It is bordered by The Brookline Ballet School and Beacon Street to the North, Washington Street to the south, Fairbanks Street to the west, and Park Street to the east. The neighborhood was named after Reverend Allen R Griggs, an emancipated slave that became a notable educator and teacher in the community. The Dallas Park Board renamed the park to Griggs Park to honor Reverend Griggs for his lifelong work. Today, the park provides family-friendly amenities and a historical memorial open to residents in the area. There is a playground for children, pet-friendly open spaces, beautiful willow trees, and ample outdoor spaces to enjoy long conversations with family and friends, scenic views, painting, and reading.
