Located in Middlesex county, Watertown was first known as Saltonstall Plantation, one of the earliest of the Massachusetts Bay settlements that begun early in 1630. Since then, Watertown’s population has reached beyond 32,000, at times in its history surpassing that of Boston. And in addition to its distinct metropolitan, commercial elements, today Watertown also enjoys many recreational parks and open spaces, including the Charles River Reservation and Beaver Brook Reservation.
