Brookline Memorial Community Center
Brookline's Memorial Park would have facilities for outings and many kinds of sports. Below is an architect's sketch of the proposed facilities. The are: 1 - Community Building; 2- Stadium; 3 - Swimming Pool; 4 - Ball Field; 5 - Amphitheatre; 6 - Tennis Courts; 7 - Children's Playground; 8 - Badminton Courts; 9 - Croquet Courts; 10 - Parking Area; 11 - Motor Gate; 12 - Ski Tower; 13 - Toboggan Slide; 14 - Picnic Groves; 15 - Boy Scout House.
This is an interesting look at the community center. It's difficult to imagine today, but this is what Brookline Park was envisioned to look like. The plans have gone through so many changes over the last half century. Brookline Park may not look at all like this 1947 artist's conception, but in the end, Brookline did get what it wanted. Brookline Memorial Park has been developed into a first class recreation facility.
