Inner Suburbs

 

These are some of our favorite playgrounds in the inner suburbs of Boston.  The inner suburbs include Arlington, Brookline, Cambridge, Medford, Newton, Somerville, and Watertown.  Please let us know if you have another playground to add!

If you have visited one of these playgrounds on our list and have a comment or photo to add, share it with us! We’d love to continue to improve this Playground Discovery Directory to make it the best possible for our Boston Moms and their kiddos!
