Recreation

The Town of Westwood encourages and maintains many recreational areas and facilities, including numerous conservation areas, playgrounds, ball fields and an indoor pool facility. The Town has two libraries with a new library under construction, a senior center and numerous community-sponsored events for the Town's residents.

With more than 1,200 acres of land in Westwood and Dover, Hale Reservation offers year round hiking trails, summer camps, a membership beach and educational programs to local residents. Founded in the early 1900's by Robert Sever Hale, Hale Reservation is one of Westwood's most beautiful natural resources conveniently located off Dover Road. In addition, the Westwood Land Trust has preserved some 187 acres of vulnerable land, much of which is open for public access.

In July 2010, Gilbane completed construction of a new walking trail, adding safe passage for biking, hiking, and walking.  This trail runs down Gay Street, starting at Thatcher, and along Fox Hill - connecting to the front entrance of Fox Meadow, and providing access to Lowell Woods.  Read more...
