Picnic spots in Boston and beyond
COREY HILL OUTLOOK, 171 Summit Ave., Brookline.
They don’t call the street that bisects this park Summit for nothing. It’s so steep in certain spots that signs read: “use hill at own risk.’’ You’ll be glad you came, though. On a clear day the views are spectacular. A popular spot for dog walkers on the expansive sloping lawn, there’s also a playground, picnic tables, and an old sun dial. When it’s not too busy, either side of the park can be a relaxing place for a nap, too. Go for it. You’ll need the energy to get back down.
