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.
