Roads


I-90/MassPike


Exit 13 near the Natick border will access Saxonville, Route 9 in the Golden Triangle area, and Lake Cochituate State Park. This is also the best exit for those coming from Boston and points east to visit the Downtown, the Amazing Things Arts Center, and Lake Cochituate.

Exit 12 gives direct access to Framingham’s Tech Park, 9/90 Industrial Park, and the western end of Route 9. It is also the best access to Downtown from points west and for Framingham State University, The Danforth Museum, Garden in the Woods, and Callahan State Park.

Route 9 / Worcester Road


Route 9 is the historic connector between the Massachusetts cities of Boston and Worcester. Framingham, in its position almost exactly halfway between the two, provides a major regional shopping and restaurant mecca along its stretch of Route 9.

Parking in Downtown
