Wayland, a picturesque community located 19 miles west of Boston, has a resident population consistently under 14,000. Its citizenry works hard to protect and maintain its open spaces, water resources and the colonial era charm of its Historic Districts. In 2009, residents voted at Town Meeting to develop acres of land originally zoned for commercial use to build a new Town Center. Conveniently located at the intersection of routes 20, 27 and 126, the Center is now zoned a mixed use area of retail shops, restaurants, a grocery store, a hardware store, a gym, a physical therapy and fitness center, beauty salons, etc. and a community of luxury condominiums. Twenty percent of Wayland's acreage is conservation land, designated as either Town-owned, National Wildlife Preservation or Sudbury Valley Trustee land. Acres of horse trails and hiking trails meander throughout the town. Two public golf courses are very close to the town center. Old stone walls, markers, open fields, a beach for town residents on Lake Cochituate and several large ponds enhance Wayand's 15.9 sq. miles and afford fishing, swimming, ice skating, canoeing and sailing. Many young families come to Wayland in their search for excellent schools. Town residents are committed to maintain its consistently highly ranked school system and towards that end built a state-of-the-art high school, completed in 2010. Adjacent to the high school a new 10 lane swimming pool offers year-round swim options, programs and classes. Wayland has a diverse housing inventory of historic and modern colonials, capes, and contemporaries, with a 2015 median sold price of $1,025,500.
