A small old theatre with great independent and some mainstream movies, good prices. Lots of eateries, bakeries, cafes, everything you could possibly need. Quaint neighborhood surrounding the square. Free parking.

The Town of Dedham spent 6.1 Million Dollars to "improve" Dedham Square. The traffic pattern is horrible too many traffic lights too close to each other. You must pay for on street parking in "pay stations" that don't work half the time. One benefit, Free Parking in the Town Lot. Besides, there is nothing in Dedham Square a couple of... More
