About West Roxbury

Boston MA 02132

 

 

West Roxbury

 

West Roxbury, located in Boston’s southwest corner, was originally part of the town of Roxbury and home to a 19th century experimental, utopian community frequented by such notable writers as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry David Thoreau. Today, West Roxbury is known for its civic activism and youth programming. Its tree lined streets and mostly single-family homes give this city neighborhood a suburban feel. Centre Street anchors the neighborhood’s business district, which consists of restaurants, banks, and shops. Residents flock to Millennium Park, a former landfill that has been converted into 100 acres of trails, ball fields, and picnic areas.
