Douglas is a Massachusetts locale with authentic small-town character, which also features superb access to all exceptional New England points. Both Route 146 and Route 395 are conveniently available for getting to Boston and Providence, while the Mass Turnpike makes for easy East-West travel.
Douglas is located in the heart of the Blackstone River Valley, and is a place where earthy beauty is brought forth by its uniquely dense natural light in winter months. On summer nights, bonfires cast a glow on the town’s unforgettable woodland charm. Douglas is home to the storied, and beautifully restored E.L. Jenckes General Store Museum, still stocked much the way it would have been in its earliest days in the 19th Century. The Breezy Picnic Grounds & Waterslides offer a splendorous waterside vista of the Whitin Reservoir, and for the young and young at heart, there are three 300-foot water slides, a game room, and snack bar. In addition, Wallum Lake and the Douglas State Forest provide a welcome year-round respite from the frenetic pace of modern life. Swimming, boating, fishing, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, are all readily available in the natural wonder of Douglas.
East Douglas is a village within the town.
