South Side Neighborhood in Waltham, MA

South Side Neighborhood

The Southside neighborhood of Waltham is often referred to as “Chemistry.” Chemistry was named after Newton Chemical Company, which opened its doors in 1825 as a producer of dyes, as well as sulfuric acid. Newton Chemical Company closed after the Civil War, and the neighborhood became partially residential.

The Southside area is home to both University of Massachusetts College of Agriculture and Bentley University. Both schools have contributed greatly to the community. UMass donated four acres of land that is currently being utilized as a community farm. The legal name is Waltham Fields Community Farm, and today the farm continues to flourish. It is a 501(c)3 charity that sponsors a weekly farmer’s market to reach out to neighborhood projects and provide fresh produce at subsidized pricing.

Lyman Pond is a popular large mouth bass fishing area in the Southside neighborhood, as well. Another popular summer spot is the Girl Scouts’ Cedar Hill Camp. During the summer, they offer a day camp program. This program allows those who attend to experience plenty of outdoor activities, including visiting frogs, geese, and ducks in the local pond. The area also has two swimming pools, a nature center, and several sheltered buildings. The seventy-five acre site offers hiking, environmental study, and more for those who are able to attend.

One of the interesting facets of this neighborhood is that it is home to some of the largest spans of open space in Waltham. Another interesting fact is that there are an extremely wide variety of foods available. While there are the traditional fast food restaurants, you can easily find Asian, Mexican, Middle Eastern, Indian, Italian, and Mexican cuisine all within a few blocks. For those who love to celebrate outdoors and follow up with a hardy lunch or dinner, this neighborhood presents a variety of options.
