Beaconsfield is a light rail station on the MBTA Green Line "D" Branch, located off Dean Road and Beaconsfield Road just south of Beacon Street in Brookline, Massachusetts. Like the other stops on the line, it was formerly a commuter rail station on the Boston and Albany Railroad's Highland Branch, which was closed and converted to a branch of the Green Line. The station reopened along with the rest of the line on July 4, 1959.[1]

Beaconsfield is not handicapped accessible; the low platforms do not permit level boarding.
