Abington is a small bedroom community located on the South Shore of Massachusetts. The town is ideal for commuters who only need to travel 12 miles north to reach Downtown Boston. Though largely residential, Abington retains a great deal of open space found in several fine parks and conservation lands. This adds a rural dimension to this well-established community of 13,000 residents where only twenty years ago, dairy farms still existed.
Incorporated in 1712, Abington began as a town based in agriculture and later manufacturing. A number of shoe factories operated in town, and today industrial activity within Abington consists of several small and medium size business sites. The majority of employers of Abington residents are found outside the community, in Boston, along Interstate 93 and in neighboring communities. Towns bordering Abington include: Weymouth on the north, Rockland on the east, Whitman on the south, and Brockton and Holbrook on the west and northwest.
Abington's local town government provides an array of services such as its own school district, full-time fire and police departments, water and sewer departments and a public library. The parks department oversees a wide selection of grounds offering outdoor sports and recreation. Island Grove Park is the towns most heavily visited recreation site, attracting visitors seeking summer activities. The park's facilities include a bath house, concession stand, gazebo, playground, picnic tables, skating facilities, and a spring-fed swimming area. Covering over fifty-five acres, the park hosts the Eager Beaver Day Camp and Girl Scout House.
Additionally, there are other parks sites offering athletic fields, public golf and state park hiking trails. Abington is a vibrant community with several active civic organizations and lively celebrations for St. Patricks Day and the 4th of July. For the rest of the year however, Abington offers residents a quiet community conveniently located in the Boston Metropolitan area.
