About Hopkinton

The Town of Hopkinton, established in 1715, gains widespread media attention each year in April when the internationally known Boston Marathon is run. Runners from all over the world gather on Main Street to begin their 26-mile run in what is always an exciting event. Hopkinton's community spirit is shared by Town residents, local businesses and industrial communities, and all who volunteer and participate in town government and community projects and programs.

Public and private recreational facilities in Town include Hopkinton State Park, Whitehall State Park, the Town beach on Lake Maspenock, Hopkinton Country Club, Hopkinton Senior Center, fishing, tennis courts, EMC Playground, the YMCA, and much more.

Cultural events include the Hopkinton Polyarts Festival, Fourth of July parade and bonfire, Marathon Spectacular Party, and the Green Community summer concert series on the Town Common. The Town is proud of its community-supported educational system, its new, expanded, recycling facility and its leaf composting program. 

The Board of Selectmen writes a letter to each new resident describing Hopkinton's facilities and programs and urging them to involve themselves in Town affairs as part of "warm and friendly Hopkinton." (source)
