What's To Love

North Medford is primarily made up of single-family homes with gracious lots and a wonderful residential feel. You will be VERY close to the Middlesex Fells Reservation which is home to over 2500 acres of walking, biking, and hiking trails. You will love the easy I-93 access from wherever you are in North Medford! Wright's Park is a lovely lakeside park with an open beach space perfect for a fun day outside with the family. There are many more public parks and family-friendly spaces throughout the community providing ample things to do for families living in the area.

What's Not To Love

The popularity of “The Fells” can cause more traffic along South Border Road and parking on residential streets, especially on weekends. Fells parking can be limited. There is a minimal number of new construction homes in the neighborhood of properties built after the 2000s. No train station within the suburb provides a convenient transportation option that connects to Downtown Boston.

Is it for me?

Who is this neighborhood for

Perfect for families or former city dwellers looking to stay close to the city, but have access to the North Shore, New Hampshire, & beyond!  Living close to I-93 allows residents to get south of the city more quickly than if they were even closer like in Somerville! North Medford is an excellent choice for buyers looking for well-priced real estate. Affordable starter homes and mid-priced residential real estate are plentiful in the area. Families looking for a comfortable home in the suburb a short drive away from the major business centers in the region will surely find the neighborhood quite attractive.
