The Town of Westford is a suburban community with rolling hills, lakes, and apple orchards. The area is ideal for biking. Incorporated on September 23, 1729, Westford is home to a beautiful library, a community center, an active recreation department, the Nashoba Valley Ski area and two town beaches located on spring-fed ponds. Westford also has a championship 18-hole semi-private golf course.


Every year the Town has an Apple Blossom Festival in May with a parade and the crowning of an apple blossom queen and a Strawberry Festival in June featuring a wonderful craft fair and strawberry shortcake. The Town of Westford truly has something for everyone.  Originally Westford was noted for its farms and woolen mills, but today is mostly a bedroom community with an emphasis on high tech.
