Reading is an easy 25 minute trip in to Boston by car via Rte 93 or MBTA Rail from downtown Reading to Boston at North Station in 30 minutes. Just 12 miles north of the center of Boston, it's a mid-sized town with outstanding services for a population of under 25,000 residents on 9.9 square miles. Its small-town feel appeals to those who want to come 'home' to the comfort and safety of their hometown with super convenience to Interstate 95, Rtes 128, 62, 129 and 28. There is bus transportation from the Reading Depot on the Malden line serving Wakefield, Melrose and Malden to Oak Grove and Malden Center T-Stations.
From Gov't Center and the bustle of activity among the buildings of the Boston skyline (inset photo) to downtown Reading, it's an escape with easy access no matter how you travel. The center has a variety of retail and service establishments, and Memorial Park and Washington Park playgrounds are just 2 of the many recreational opportunities in Reading. Friends of Recreational Reading (FORR) promotes diversity in recreational development and uses for all residents of town.
Due North of the center of Boston, its history, sporting and cultural events and opportunities, Reading still feels like it's farther away with open space, recreation areas, tree-lined streets and residential neighborhoods.
With its easy access for commuters and proximity to downtown Boston, Reading's Master Plan is committed to an improved downtown with more amenities, and a restaurant, retail and service mix as a goal to better serve residents and to attract new businessess that will thrive in Reading and adding to the economic stability of existing retailers and service businesses as well.
Reading Schools are highly ranked among area schools and the recent remodel of Reading Memorial High School in 2007 is known for academic excellence. Elementary and Middle Schools are located in neighborhood settings and serve as convenient and smaller 'communities' within the town itself.
