Primarily a family-oriented town, Needham is a collection of great neighborhoods and great neighbors. With plenty of in-town options for family activities, Needham boasts a YMCA, plenty of playgrounds, local golf and even its own bowling alley.
Needham town center is a classic combination of wonderful restaurants and interesting local merchants who offer many local employment opportunities. Each season is marked with its own event. Spring and fall, the Needham Business Association puts on street fairs. Summer sees a 4th of July celebration complete with a fantastic fireworks display and a parade. New Year’s Eve is celebrated in style with a First Night of town wide activities, entertainment and fireworks.
Needham celebrated its 300th anniversary in 2011 with the restoration of the Great Hall (now called the James Hugh Powers Hall) in the newly renovated town hall. Restored to its original glory, the Great Hall is the venue for a series of concerts throughout the year intended to further enrich the lives of Needham residents.
Needham public school system is one of the strongest in the state. There are also private school options in town as well as the Olin College of Engineering. Commuting by car is easy, with access to both the Mass Pike nearby and route 128/95 in town. Conveniently, Needham also has four commuter rail stations.
