Wayland

Welcome to Wayland

Wayland (17,500 pop.) is a semi-rural community located 18 miles west of Boston and 30 miles east of Worcester. Residents enjoy easy access to the Route 128 high-tech industry corridor and the Massachusetts Turnpike. Although Wayland is located in an area that provides easily accessible shopping, sightseeing, entertainment, and dining, the town itself remains a quiet bedroom community with little industrial or commercial base.Wayland residents are proud of their school system – it’s one of the finest in the state — and their town’s preservation of the area’s forests, marshes and fields that offer plentiful areas for recreation, including fishing (at Mill Pond), hiking, and horseback riding.
