The Audubon Circle Neighborhood Association was formed in 1982 to represent the residents, property owners and business owners of the Audubon Circle neighborhood. The Circle is an historic residential "pocket" neighborhood in Boston's Fenway district tucked between Brookline on the west, Kenmore and Fenway Park on the east, the Massachusetts Turnpike and Boston University to the north, and the Boston Fens to the south. The neighborhood is known for the diversity of its residents, who range from student renters, to families who have occupied the same single-family homes since the 19th century, to young legal and medical professionals residing in new high-rise apartment buildings.
Audubon Circle is particularly attractive to urban dwellers for its central location: residents not only enjoy a wide range of restaurants and shops in the neighborhood, but have quick access to key destinations in the Boston area via the B, C and D Green Line trolleys and the #47 and CT#2 buses traveling to Cambridge, and are within walking distance to Red Sox games and events at Fenway Park, to shopping in Kenmore Square and at the Landmark Center, and to the medical facilities of the world-renowned Longwood Medical Area.The all-volunteer, not-for-profit ACNA takes on a wide range of projects of interest to neighborhood residents and businesses, including beautification, the tracking of new private residential and commercial developments, city traffic and improvement plans for the Circle, and zoning issues. The ACNA prides itself on responding to the concerns of its residents. We host an Annual Meeting for the entire neighborhood every March, and various social events are planned each year to provide a relaxing setting for neighbors to meet.
Everyone is welcome to attend our monthly Board meetings (see our Meetings page) and encouraged to become involved and contribute to one of the ACNA's activities for the neighborhood. There are tasks large and small to suit your schedule and interests: contact us today!
