Milford’s varied neighborhoods, from spacious homes in rural-suburban developments to walkable mixed-use neighborhoods, its local businesses, parks, strong school system and youth programs make it a vibrant community. The Milford Oval gives the town center a picturesque, New England feel, and is host to heavily attended town events such as the Milford Pumpkin Festival. The Oval’s round park, with paths, benches, sculpture and a bandstand, is surrounded by small businesses and restaurants. Nearby parks are accessible by road or path. Even Keyes Field, whose entrance is located a short drive away on Elm Street, can be reached by a wooded path and footbridge over the Souhegan River. Keyes – just one of Milford’s parks and recreational areas – is home to a skate park, several playground structures, picnic areas and the town pool, where regional swim meets are held.
