Re: the neighborhood across from Sturgess Park in Reading--

Asked by Gina Moran, 02149 Tue Feb 19, 2013

It's a pretty area, but also popular - are the parked cars and noise from children ever too much on nice evenings, on weekends and in the summer?

Help the community by answering this question:


massachusetts law prohibits agents from advertising "quiet" area or street. You should ask the neighbors or visit yourself.

Hi Gina,

I am a Reading RE/MAX Broker, long time resident and also a member of Town Meeting. There have been complaints recently about certain recreational areas and noise levels - but this is not one of them. Our town parks do have different usage patterns. For example, if you live near the Birch Meadow area - you can expect to hear the sound of marching band competitions during the summer as well as certain adult team sports using amplified sound. Also Memorial Park is the site of a weekly concert series every summer. Sturges is not a park that is used for events like this - it is a small neighborhood park with a ball field, and a basketball court, and ice skating area. It is targeted for an update in the near future as the neighbors have just completed a Master plan. See link before.

It may be hard to gauge noise levels at this time of year - but other residents enjoy the social aspects and it is a casual gathering place to catch up with neighbors.

Hi Gina,
This is hard to answer because it really depends on the person what they consider noisy. Most parks in Reading have signs that prohibits use of the park after dark but if you are thinking of buying a house there check it out on the weekends and evenings to see if the level is acceptable to you.
