Dear Friend,

Welcome to the City of Lowell.  As City Manager, I want to personally invite you to explore our historic city and enjoy all we have to offer. And when you do, you’ll discover why there truly is a lot to like about Lowell.

Visiting Lowell

As you walk along our cobblestone streets, you’ll see art galleries, condos and lofts, public art, gourmet restaurants, boutique stores, and coffee shops. Lowell has its own urban, National Historical Park and is home to several historical museums.  Lowell is also home to the Merrimack Repertory Theatre, which is one of the few self-sustaining repertory theater groups in the northeast. And the 3200-seat Lowell Auditorium hosts many of the country's best comedians, musicians and Broadway shows. The Paul E. Tsongas Arena, which seats 7500, serves as great venue for international sporting events and pop concerts. And in the summer month Lowell’s Lelacher Park, hosts all the home games for the Lowell Spinners, a single A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

In addition to our great entertainment and history, Lowell’s access to Interstates 495, 93 and Route 3 make us an ideal location to live and work.

Living in Lowell

While Lowell maintains many of the amenities of a larger city, it prides itself on its small-town feeling. The city neighborhoods are a wonderful blend of older and newer homes.  Plus, innovative re-use of former mills has led to the development of executive-class apartments and condominiums within walking distance of Lowell's many cultural amenities. Lowell also provides outstanding health care within minutes of virtually every neighborhood.  Lowell General Hospital offers a full range of medical and surgical services across two campuses, as well as a number of outstanding health education programs.

Lowell has an outstanding public education program that’s committed to providing students with a top-notch education from K-12 and beyond. Our institutions of higher learning include Middlesex Community College and UMass Lowell, which play an intricate role in building a qualified workforce.
