Douglas: Ready For Livin'
Have you seen Good Will Hunting? Yes? Then you know that everything in Massachusetts reeks of intelligence and big think personalities. Douglas is no different. Sort of. It can claim the Bay State as its master, true, but it's not part and parcel of the Boston area's brain trust, which includes MIT and Harvard among other lesser stars of the cerebral. But hey, almost 100% of its residents can claim to have a high school diploma, and its neighbor is the city of Oxford, which shares a name with a super prestigious English institute of higher education.
Surely that all counts for something
Douglas apparently has exactly one neighborhood: East Douglas. Can you guess where it's located? It appears to be a pretty hilly town. They even give names to their hills like Bald Hill, Wallum Pond Hill, and Mount Daniel. Oh, and ponds too. Wallum Pond is the biggest, covering 150 acres of the city's good natured and scenic territory. Apparently fishers like the spot's fine selections of Atlantic salmon, American eel, bluegill, and brown trout, among other delectable water dwellers.
Like a lot of New England towns, Douglas appears to have almost nothing by way of poverty. A solid income level for its residents? Yes. But almost no serious poverty. And we'd submit that's a good thing.
There's a lot to like about the city, so do all you can to prepare for your big move to your new apartment in the city by exploring its online presence. In depth. Yes, there will be a test.
Douglas Time Killers
At some point you'll have to leave your apartment. Yea yea, we know you love it, but unless you plan on shelling out money to a local teen willing to deliver groceries to you, you'll at least have to leave for that reason alone. But we pray you aren't a shut-in of the extreme sort.
The city features a fantastic set of trails that were designed ever so long ago to be railroad tracks. The financier met his fate during the sinking of his Titanic, of all historical events, and so the path beaten for the proposed rail line was never completed. Today hikers can walk the route originally meant for a hulking locomotive and get an eye and earful of New England plant and animal life in the process.
If boredom is the name of your game, sit at home and enjoy your Netflix. (We remember when we were told to make it a ""Blockbuster Night,"" but things change.) But you know you can do that anywhere, so make like a New England Patriot and defend your right to enjoy your new neighborhood why don't ya?

I've got dogs. What are the best places in Douglas for being outdoors with pets?
Douglas isn't home to any off-leash dog parks. It does, however, contain a lot of park land. With nearly 6,000 acres, Douglas State Forest lies adjacent to Wallum Lake, located on the south side of the city next to the Rhode Island border. The Midstate Trail, a long-distance hiking trail, runs through the forest.
Does Douglas have a good school system?
Public education is provided by the Douglas School District, which consists of four schools serving less than 1,800 students: Douglas Early Childhood (a preschool) Douglas Elementary (K-2), Douglas Intermediate (3-7), and Douglas High (8-12). This district was rated better than only 26.4 percent of school districts in Massachusetts, which is well below the state average. However, Massachusetts is known for its high-quality schools, and the same district was rated better than 86.5 percent of school districts in the country.
