Notice: July 4th Fireworks

Many will visit Brookline on Wednesday, July 4th to view the Boston Esplanade fireworks. Larz Anderson Park is one of the best places in Brookline to view the fireworks and Boston skyline. This area attracts hundreds of people each year. Because of the large crowds expected, the following safety measures will be implemented:
• The top of the park will be closed to all traffic starting at 6PM. Any vehicles parked at the top of the park will be towed and barricades will be put into place. ONLY pedestrian access will be allowed to the top area starting at 6PM.
• People are reminded that fireworks are illegal, and alcohol is restricted in all parks. Please leave those items at home.
• Officers will be assigned to this area and will be proactively monitoring the area.

Summit Ave Park is another popular spot even though you have very limited viewing access due to the large tree coverage.
• The area around Summit Ave Park will become a No Parking-Tow Away Zone
• Summit Ave will become a one-way coming from Brighton towards Beacon St. Traffic coming up Summit Ave from Beacon will be detoured at Jordan Rd/York Terrace.

As with all events that draw crowds, people are asked to report anything they think is suspicious. If you See Something, Say Something. Please help us make this a safe and enjoyable event as we celebrate our Nation’s Independence.
