Medway has allot to offer, more so when the renovations to the infrastructure is complete, Fall 2019. New sidewalks! Medway is located a few miles from 495 and close to 4 communities: Millis, Bellingham, Franklin and Holliston that have large department stores, a movie theatre, Ice Creams Shoppes, Dean College, Trendy Bars and Bowling Alley. The Wrentham Outlet is a 15 minute drive away. Medway has a few farms, some sell fresh eggs!

The schools are great! When Choate Park is done being renovated Fall, 2019, there will be many community events. We cannot wait!

Medway is a great town to live in for multiple reasons. It is not too big of a town, which is good because there are always familiar faces everywhere you go. Also, if you have kids that is good because they get to know everyone in town from school. We have many family owned shops and restaurants to go out to with the family, or just a couple and it is a pretty safe town as well. Houses are also very affordable if you're looking to settle down. You will not be disappointing with the quality!
I moved here 2.5 years ago and I am trying to get out. I am in an interracial marriage and I cannot have my biracial kids growing up here. There was a perfect opportunity for Medway to show itself at the height of everyone's anger about George Floyd, BLM, racism being revealed so clearly...and yet I saw MAX 2 homes with supportive signage. Instead I saw the residents posting on Medway Page that they are upset that the high schoolers didn't get a graduation ceremony...but the town is willing to host a march for george floyd and civil rights. MOST residents of this town have disappointed me greatly and I no longer feel secure and comfortable here. If you are white- sure, great place to live. If you are any other race- it is not. You've been warned, as I was warned when I posted a picture of myself and my black husband to the Friends of Medway page..... MEDWAY, DO BETTER.
