Newton, 13 Villages and 1 Community!

Newton, 13 Villages and 1 Community!

Newton, known as the Garden City, is located 6 miles west of Boston Proper. The city of Newton is comprised of thirteen villages, as last  reported by the Mayor’s Office. Different sources over the years counts vary. In any event, each village has a unique character which provides for the advantages of small local neighborhoods.  Yet with a population of over 80,000, with a total land area of over approximately 18 sq. miles, Newton enjoys the economies of scale that a well managed local government can provide and the schools system is nationally renowned.  Newton is surrounded on three sides by the Charles River and has well maintained parks, bicycle and fitness trails, golf courses, a public pool and a lake. The community is rich with cultural activities that include arts, music, and theater. There is a Symphony Orchestra, a Senior Center, an award winning library, and the nationally accredited Jackson Homestead and Museum.

Newton Fire Departments Fire Safety House

Keller Williams Realty agents and Newton Fire Department sponsored a Family Safety Day at the Newton FunFest.

Newton Fire Department has a great educational vehicle called the Smoke House.  Inside the trailer is a classroom seating area with a little pretend kitchen. Watch this video to see how the children learn what to do in the event of fire. The simulation is totally safe. From what I could see, the kids were riveted. This video was taken at the Newton FunFest on Saturday, May 4th. These fireman all volunteered their time for the opportunity to connect with the community in a fun and non-threatening atmosphere.
