Welcome to Devens Massachusetts
Live – Work – Play
Devens Massachusetts is not quite a town but surely has that small-town community vibe. The former Fort Devens Military base closed in 1996 and what was left was a planned community by MassDevelopment which acts as the governing body over the residents and multiple companies that call Devens home.
Although there is still a military presence here with the National Guard and Reserve forces training facilities in the back of the old base by the highway it does not take away from the small-town feel.
Devens at present time is pushing a population of almost 2000 and is the home for many large sports tournaments from Lacrosse, Ultimate Frisbee, Soccer, and more. Along with the spectacular Red Tail Golf Club, Devens has multiple recreational fields that can be leased for all kinds of events other than sports including Food Truck Festivals, Devens Family Fun Day, The Bay State Games, and others.
Check out the Devens Community website for more info on all events and more of what Devens has to offer.
