Wayland is a peaceful community located in MetroWest situated at the halfway point between Boston and Worcester. While Wayland is located in an area that provides easily accessible shopping, sightseeing, dining and entertainment, Wayland itself remains a quiet bedroom community in a semi-rural setting with little industrial or commercial base.
Wayland is the home to many urban professionals due in part to its peaceful setting and its close proximity to the City of Boston. In addition to that, Wayland is an ideal community to raise a family as Wayland's School System is known as one of the finest school systems in the state. Also, the Town has taken many steps to preserve forests, marshes and fields that surround the Sudbury River and provides its residents an opportunity to enjoy these areas for passive recreation.
The meadows and marshes along the ten-mile course of the Sudbury River through Wayland have been kept relatively unspoiled and are now the object of private and public efforts to maintain them in their natural state. They provide an open, rural setting and contribute to the attractive features and uniqueness of this almost purely residential town. Wayland is the home of two public golf courses, Wayland Country Club and Sandy Burr Country Club. There is a town beach located on Lake Cochituate that offers swimming and a boat launch to its residents and guests. Wayland also offers Mill Pond for fishing, pine-forested picnic areas and many conservation areas for hiking and horse riding trails. Wayland promotes outdoors athletic activities and provides well equipped basketball courts, ten tennis courts, ice-skating areas, a swimming pool, and several playgrounds.
