Norwood Memorial Airport (IATA: OWD, ICAO: KOWD, FAA LID: OWD) is a public airport two miles (3 km) east of Norwood, in Norfolk County, Massachusetts. It is home to the offices of prominent local businessmen and several maintenance facilities.
As Outlying Landing Field Norwood, the airfield was a Naval Outlying Landing Field located in Norwood, Massachusetts operational from 1942 to 1945. It existed as an outlying field of Naval Air Station Squantum and was used by student pilots to gain flight experience on its two 4,000 foot runways. The 1946 chart shows it as a civil airfield. It took the place of the former Boston Metropolitan Airport in Canton, Massachusetts.
