Newton, known as the “Garden City” by locals is a vibrant blend of urban and suburban. This diverse city-that-feels-like-a-town is a patchwork of 14 villages, each one with its own distinctive charm and unique character. Though only unofficially designated, many of the villages have their own downtown area and most have their own post office.
The first city in the state to establish mandatory curbside recycling, Newton is filled with beautiful well-maintained parks, bicycle and fitness trails, golf courses and a public pool. There is even a 33-acre natural lake with its own town beach and bathhouse right in Newton Centre.
The Newton public school system rates among the top in the state and has received national recognition. There are a wide variety of private school options and six colleges, including Boston College.
Only seven miles from downtown Boston, commuting is a breeze. There is easy access to the Mass Pike, route 128/95 and route 9 if you are travelling by car. For those who prefer public transportation, there are commuter rail, bus and subway services available.
