Hopkinton MA ~ Scenes From Around Town

  Welcome to Hopkinton Massachusetts...The start of the world famous Boston Marathon. Located 26 miles West of Boston, Hopkinton MA is a great destination town for people looing to buy a home in the Metrowest area.

Below you will find scenes from around this fantastic town.




The Hopkinton town common in the summer. The common is homes to some great band concerts in the summer time on Sunday evenings.






The Hopkinton State Park is a great destination for summer fun. There is a beach, picnic area, fields for sports, and of course the reservoir for boating. There is also a large dam that folks like to hang out on.                                                                             





Lake Maspenock is another popular lake in Hopkinton. Lake Maspenock has a small beach that is open to Hopkinton residents. You will find jet-ski's and small motor craft on this lake. The lake is surrounded by homes that were originally cottages. Many of the homes around the Lake have been added on and improved creating a popular Hopkinton location. Lake Maspenock is only a few miles to 495. Lake Maspenock is also know as "North Pond".




Hopkinton has one of the finest schools in Metrowest. The Hopkinton Junior-Senior High Schoolwas only built a few years ago. One of the big attractions is the "Field House" which is a great athletic facility that the "Hillers" reside in for their home games.



 The Hopkinton town hall is one of the older structures in town. It is located in the center of town diagonally across the street from the Hopkinton public library. The majority of the towns office's are located in this building. The selectman and planning board meetings take place here.               





 The Hopkinton police station is a beautiful facility that is only a couple years old. It is located across from the fire station in the center of town. The police station has a great park like setting out front.                                                               




The starting line for the Boston Marathon is located parallel to the town common. Every April thousands of people descend upon Hopkinton for one of the most well know marathons that starts in Hopkinton and ends in Boston.





 This monument is located out in front of Weston Nurseries along Rte 135. The statue is a symbol for the Boston Marathon.                                                                               






 This photo captures the magnificent view of Lake Whitehall and the town forest. The view is from a terrific Hopkinton neighborhood know as "Forestside Estates". There are a number of beautiful homes in this luxury development located a few miles from 495 and the MA Pike.

Like this one. Nice photos, a lot of air. Easy to read. We've got to do more pieces like this. We're so bogged down with market reports and the like. Need to open things up a bit and change that.

Thanks again for commenting with us. It's always sincerely appreciated.

Hopkinton, MA looks like a great area!  You mentioned it is the start of the Boston Marathon.  I participated in a triathlon earlier this year and by the scenic views in the pictures of Hopkinton I hope I can find a triathlon up your way or maybe even participate in the Boston Marathon!  The views look incredible, especially the view of Lake Whitehall.  Forestside Estates must be quite the nice neighborhood to live in!

Sal - Hopkinton MA is a great place to live. I have been here my entire life and worked in the town as a Realtor for 21 years. It is great that you are doing triathlons....I have always thought that was just unbelievable. If you are going to do a marathon, I would recommend Boston as your next stop, There are some amazing places to explore up here - you would have a blast.
