Part of a Growing Center. Located 20 miles west of Boston and Cambridge, West Acton Village is a walkable, mixed-use center that serves several rapidly growing, highly-educated, and prosperous communities. Roughly 60,000 people live within a 5-mile radius of the Village. Since 2000, the number of households in this 5-mile radius has grown by nearly 10%. Acton’s median family income is approximately $156,000/yr (2012), and the Acton-Boxborough Public Schools consistently rank among the best in the Massachusetts.
High Visibility. Each Villageworks address retains its own unique character and fronts directly on Massachusetts Ave (Rt. 111), a busy commuter route carrying approximately 15,000 vehicles through West Acton every day.
Walk to Everything. Working closely with town officials, we redesigned the Mass Ave street configuration to slow down vehicle traffic, increase pedestrian connectivity, and make walking safer and easier. New sidewalks, walkways, and signalized pedestrian crossings lead to village businesses, surrounding neighborhoods, Gardner Field Playground, and the Acton-Boxborough public schools.
Easy Access and Parking. Minutes from I-495, Rt 2, and Rt 27, West Acton is easily reached from nearby towns like Concord, Harvard, Boxborough, Stow, Sudbury, and Littleton. Villageworks is served by on-street, off-street, and covered garage parking. Don’t want to drive? We've got plenty of bicycle parking and the South Acton MBTA Commuter Rail station (Porter Sq/North Station) is just a short bike ride away. A town operated shuttle service also connects West Acton to the MBTA Commuter Rail. Learn more about getting to Villageworks at our Visit page.
The Heart of a Community. Village restaurants and coffee shops, a seasonal weekly Farmers Market, the annual Holiday Stroll and Oktoberfest festivals, and Theater III stage performances all help make West Acton an important regional cultural activity center. The Gallery at Villageworks, our flexible meeting and events venue at 525 Mass Ave, hosts concerts, lectures, films, storytelling slams, art exhibitions, and other programs that further draw people into our community's center.
