Situated about 25 miles west of Boston, Ashland has become a premier suburb in the Greater Boston, Metropolitan area.
Graced with a very highly ranked school system (the high school was listed by Newsweek as one of the US’s top 100), Ashland’s continuing concern for teaching its children well is evidenced in the just completed (Jan 2006) high school. Further, every existing school building has been renovated and/or expanded in the past 15 years.
Investments have been made town-side too. The Town recently renovated Town Hall maintaining its historic appearance while rebuilding its structure to last another 150 years. As well, Ashland built a new Community Center (2004), rebuilt and expanded the historic Carnegie library (2005) and the downtown fire station was renovated in the mid-1990’s.
Ashland’s proximity to Boston has resulted in a recently completed Purple Line “T” station that terminates at South Station in downtown Boston at one end of the rail line and at the downtown Worcester train station at the other end. Because of this, Ashland has seen significant growth in the past few years, growth that will soon slow as land zoned for housing is fully developed.
Ashland is one of Massachusetts smallest towns (~12.5 square miles), yet nearly 25% of the town (approx. 4 sq. mi.) is open space. That open space compliments Hillcrest-Estates’ open space. Hillcrest-Estates’ walking trails are linked to an extensive town-wide walking trail system that incorporates the Bay Circuit Trail. The Bay Citcuit Trail swings roughly 25 miles outside Boston and extends from Crane’s Beach in the North to Plymouth in the South.
Ashland is a progressive, wooded, suburban community that is ideal for thriving families.
