Webster Square is the area of Worcester that’s west of Route 122 and north of Stafford Street. Most of the homes in this region are located in quiet neighborhoods off of Mill Street and Main Street, the two main roads of the area.
The homes in Webster Square vary in size, but are predominantly 2-4 bedroom residences with styles including Colonials, townhouses, and ranches. Many of these houses have a large lawn and attached garage or private driveway. There are also a couple of condominium complexes in the area, such as Hadwen Park Place, which features 1-2 bedroom condos. Many plots of land up to an acre in size can be found here as well, any of which would be great for anyone looking to build a new house.
Two popular shopping plazas can be found at the southern end of Webster Square: Mill Street Plaza and Webster Square Plaza. This region is also just north of Auburn, Massachusetts, where you’ll find over 100 stores and restaurants at Auburn Mall and Auburn Plaza Shopping Center.
One of Webster Square’s most defining attractions is Coes Reservoir, which is known locally as Coes Pond. Visitors of Coes Pond can enjoy a day at the Coes Pond Beach, which has a nice sandy area for lying in the sun as well as a covered picnic area. The pond is also a decent spot to go fishing, however, you may have better luck at Indian Lake or Lake Quinsigamond, a large body of water on the east side of Worcester which is home to trout, salmon, bass, and more.
Route 9 runs through the southern side of Webster Plaza, making it easy for residents of this area to travel into the heart of Worcester. As you travel east along Route 9, known locally as Main Street, you’ll come across the Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts, Mechanics Hall, and Palladium, each of which is known to hold plays and concerts.
Those who enjoy traveling can fly out of Worcester Regional Airport, which is within a mile of the north side of Webster Square. Locals can also hop on the Mass Pike, which travels east to Boston and west to the Massachusetts-New York state border, a few miles south of this area.
