Senior center is sparkling new, there is a limited rotation shuttle bus with handicapped access, and a fair number of semi-affordable restaurants and markets. I would call it 'semi' friendly, b/c many walking trails are not completed or dsiappear (e.g sidewalks end on 27 unexpectedly, forcing to cross busy roads, or even a new "62 and you" condo complex is unreachable for the unfamiliar/without car..a higway triple overpass blocks Worcester Rd ped X!) and bicycle/pedestrian walkways disappear on smaller distances as well to/from downtown and/or Natick Mall area=the major "hubs" for older people to try to commute to within town, afaict.
