Mostly constructed after World War II, geographically-large Sixteen Acres brings suburbia to the city. Besides streets of quality ranches, colonials, split-levels, and capes, the neighborhood has large condominium complexes on Nassau Drive.
The 18-hole Veterans Memorial Golf Course, 28-acre Greenleaf Park, a recently-expanded branch library, and two private beach clubs (Bass Pond and the Paddle Club) are located here as is Western New England University and its law school. Commercial clusters on Wilbraham Road and Allen Street provide convenient shopping, including the recently-opened Fresh Acres Market.
Sixteen Acres residents have a quick drive to East Longmeadow's employers, such as Hasbro and American Saw, as well as a short drive up Parker Street to the Mass Turnpike (I-90).
Besides many public schools, the SABIS International Charter School, and the Pioneer Valley Christian Academy are located in this neighborhood.
