Roslindale

Find out why residents love this neighborhood’s natural beauty and charm.

Residents used to call Roslindale the “garden suburb” of Boston. Today, they still enjoy the neighborhood’s natural beauty. Here you’ll find the Arnold Arboretum. It's a 265-acre park that’s part of Boston’s Emerald Necklace. Many of the area’s colonial homes are now condos that house the City’s growing population.

Roslindale Village is the original Main Street district. Today, it’s a vibrant shopping and dining area. Enjoy unique shops, bistros, and wireless internet. Downtown is just a quick ride away on the MBTA Orange Line and Commuter Rail.
