Brookline Living

Brookline is a great place for seniors to live!

The World Health Organization has included Brookline into its Global Network of Age-friendly Cities and Communities. As a member, Brookline is part of a growing global movement of cities and communities that are striving to better meet the needs of their older residents.

Brookline, although bordering Boston on several sides, has always managed to maintain its own identity. Brookline features a mixture of urban and suburban living, upscale shops and recreation parks, apartment buildings and large estates. Along with offering both a city atmosphere and a feeling of being in the country, there is a wide range of people that live in Brookline. It is the home of many academic and scientific professionals who work at the nearby Boston universities and medical centers. Brookline has kept its town meeting form of government since its incorporation in 1705. Among it's many unusual resources, Brookline has its own working farm, the oldest country club in the nation, a town golf course, a hillside park overlooking Boston with an open-air skating rink and transportation museum as well as numerous parks scattered throughout the town.
