Ranked as one of the best places to live in the United States by Money Magazine, Westwood is a small town that symbolizes all that's great about living in Massachusetts. With a population of almost 15,000 residents, it provides an atmosphere of small, close-knit communities where neighbors know one another and help out when needed. Located close to Dover and other larger cities, it offers families as well as professionals a chance to live in a small town while still being near larger cities where they work.
Home to some of the state's best schools, Westwood's reputation is becoming more widespread throughout the state. Widely known as a wealthy Massachusetts town, parents and students have become accustomed to having the best of everything when it comes to education. Great teachers, modern facilities, and innovative programs all add up to endless opportunities for students to prepare themselves for the job market or higher education upon graduation. In fact, Westwood High School, Thurston Middle School, and Deerfield Elementary School have all received awards for their efforts in teaching students.
Due to the majority of families having high net incomes, Westwood's real estate market is ideally suited to fit their lifestyle. Spacious homes, many of which have been newly constructed in the past several years, have plenty of room for growing families and are located close to local schools and parks. For those who live in Westwood but work in nearby cities, the area has also seen a rise in the number of townhouses available in the town. And not surprisingly, the town is gradually becoming a favorite spot for well-to-do retirees who are seeking a quiet, out of the way spot to relax and enjoy their golden years.
While a small town, Westwood is home to one of the state's largest recreation areas. Hale Reservation, spanning well over 1,200 acres, contains beaches, walking trails, and other areas that are used by citizens on a daily basis. For families who are seeking the good life and settle down in a small, friendly town with much to offer, there's no better place than Westwood.
