Growing up in Mansfield I’ve enjoyed many of the town’s highlights. A few; catching a concert at the Xfinity Center, spending time at Mansfield’s Crossing Shopping area then grabbing pizza locally and enjoying Flint Farm's variety of uniquely named ice-creams. If willing, try the Green Monster! My younger years, an Annual Fun Night downtown, filled with food games and prizes. Also, a bag full of candy or a dill pickle from the Country Store, a true New England experience! Kids can still enjoy Movies Under the Stars every Wednesday come summertime as I did, take a walk, run or bike the Veterans World War II trail and most definitely, check out a Hornets football game on Friday nights. The Mansfield Varsity Team won, Superbowl Champions 2019! Our towns, small population around 24,000 is a great place to bring up children. It’s safe and ranked the number one “Best Place to Live” in Bristol County. I’d say it is very family oriented, educationally worthy and socially close.

I love living here. I moved here in my early 20's, and left after 3 years to move to Hawaii temporarily. When I left Hawaii, I came right back to Mansfield! There is a strong community presence here, excellent restaurants and it is very centrally located to major highways while still having a small-town feel. There is also a commuter rail to get you into Providence or Boston conveniently, all the while still preserving the feeling of being in a nice town instead of a run-down commuter city. I love it here and plan on purchasing my first home here.
I've been living here a year now, Me and my wife love it. Safe community and friendly people. Lots of convince for shopping and dinning. Near "xfinity center" for concerts and a great Mansfield public school system for academics & junior sports teams.
They also uphold The Pandemic guideline here, very we'll people are wearing masks and don't social gather per local & federal laws.

Thanks, Dennis F.
