Fun Fact: Prior to the rise of shopping malls in the 1970s, Roslindale Square, the Roslindale business district, was a major shopping center for Boston, with department stores, showrooms, food markets, and a movie theatre.
Just six miles south of downtown Boston lies the neighborhood of Roslindale which is bordered by the neighborhoods of Jamaica Plain, Hyde Park, West Roxbury and Mattapan. See a map here. Roslindale has a mix of single-family homes and two and three family homes.
Roslindale is serviced by the MBTA commuter rail with a stop in Roslindale Village as well as several bus routes. The MBTA orange line is accessible in nearby Jamaica Plain.
A portion of the Arnold Arboretum, the oldest public arboretum in North America, is in Roslindale. It is the perfect place for a walk and leaves you feeling like you might actually be in a forest fairytale instead of in the city of Boston. Peters Hill offers a perfect view of the Boston skyline. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife including, coyotes, turkeys, rabbits and birds. Lots of birds. It's free and open every day.
Even though the department stores, showrooms and movie theatre are gone (see above fun fact), Roslindale Village boasts a vibrant commercial center with a grocery store, food markets, restaurants and shops. There is even a small Target in the village.
