West Roxbury

Living in the West Roxbury Neighborhood

A City Suburb Steeped in Boston Tradition

When you want a lawn to mow and more space to grow, West Roxbury is an awesome option. This inner suburb is the commuter-friendly, family-centric hub of Boston.

Playgrounds, parks and schools abound in this bedroom community that’s still only about 20 minutes from downtown. With a vibrant history, strong community service roots and a family focus, it’s never a big surprise to see a parade coming down Centre Street.

Six miles of walking trails in Millenium Park, in addition to the 179 preserved acres of the Brook Farm Institute of Agriculture and Education, make West Roxbury green and walkable. The majority of this neighborhood’s cafes, bakeries and shops are still independent, which provides ample opportunities for you to support your neighbors’ businesses.
