Hudson is a growing and vibrant community on the western edge of Middlesex County, within a short drive to Boston or Worcester. The town is home to over 19,000 residents with an historic downtown dating back to the 1800s.
Hudson is bordered by five other towns, including Bolton, Berlin, Marlborough, Stow and Sudbury.
Downtown Hudson begins at a traffic circle (where Routes 62 and 85 converge) with brick-lined sidewalks bordered by attractive, brick-faced buildings and a wide, lake-like section of the Assabet River. Main Street and South Street follow the mighty Assabet eastward, featuring walking/biking trails, parks, popular restaurants, shops, businesses, a brewery, and other attractions.
An active Historic Commission helps retain the 1800s persona, with an attractive town hall, library, fire house, and commercial properties that match the theme. Though thankful for its rich past, Hudson lives now and looks to the future with excellent, modern schools, town water and sewage, a reliable power utility (Hudson Light and Power), recreational areas, and a reasonable tax base that attracts both families and businesses.
Hudson is an outdoor-lovers paradise. There are 17 parks and two athletic complexes offering a variety of amenities including a town beach, skateboard area, a splash pad water feature, batting cages, tennis courts, ball fields, and playgrounds.
There's a community spirit found in Hudson that can't be found in larger cities. Neighbors care about each other, parents can feel comfortable about letting their kids play outside, and its residents are actively involved in making their town the best it can be.
Hudson is more than a location. It's a place where families and businesses can thrive. It's the perfect place to live, learn, work, and play.
