I am a resident of Westfield, MA for almost nine years. Westfield is a very safe place to live in. I have never been robbed or threatened and don't know anyone who has been either. Westfield has many stores and plazas that provide an interesting shopping experience. Various parks and recreation centers offer families the opportunity to get together and have fun. Clean and friendly neighborhoods make Westfield the place for you. Come and see Westfield for yourself!
Westfield, Massachusetts is where I am living while I am a college student at a Springfield school. It is a family friendly neighborhood, and there is little to no crime. Stanley Park is a hidden gem, and is rich with hiking trails and picnic tables, as well as an excellent place to have wedding photos taken. The Westfield Atheneum, is another gem. The staff is knowledgeable, and it is a great place for students to access scholarly journals, and research sources.
