Community Spotlight: Framingham

America’s largest town boasts a population of almost 70,000 residents speaking more than 50 languages and living 20 miles west of Boston in urban, suburban, and rural neighborhoods. Along with great neighborhoods, Framingham has extraordinary options for shopping and dining, a vibrant and innovative center for business and industry that hosts a number of world class companies, an expanding hub of cultural and educational opportunity, unmatched road and railway access, and active investment in the Town’s infrastructure.

Higher Education

Framingham boasts excellent higher education opportunities right in our back yard at Framingham State University and Mass Bay Community College, as well as easy access to the world-class institutions in the greater Boston area, including Harvard, MIT, Tufts, Boston University, Boston College, Wellesley, Brandeis, Bentley, Northeastern University, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute. 

In addition to continuing education opportunities at Framingham State University and Mass Bay Community College, there are opportunities for arts education through both the Danforth Museum School and the Amazing Things Arts Center Workshops

Recreation
Framingham operates over 200 youth, adult, and family arts and athletic programs on 62 public athletic fields, an indoor pool, a skating rink, and an athletic center. You and your family can also enjoy 52 playgrounds with equipment, 20 public tennis courts including 10 with lights, and three public beaches. You could go boating and picnicking at Farm Pond, skating at Loring Arena, walking through Wittenborg Woods - you’ll run out of weekends before you run out of things to do! 

When completed, the Cochituate Rail Trail will connect Framingham and Natick residents to local schools, offices, shopping, and transportation hubs. The 25-mile Bruce Freeman Rail Trail, which will connect Framingham with Lowell, is in the planning stages, as is the 104-mile long Mass Central Rail Trail, connecting Boston to Western Massachusetts, passing just north of Framingham.

In between are a wide variety of restaurants at every price-point.
