South Attleboro is a neighborhood of Attleboro, a city in Bristol County, Massachusetts, United States. It is perhaps best known for the South Attleboro station on the Attleboro/Stoughton Line of the MBTA Commuter Rail.

South Attleboro is home to 2 schools: Robert J Coelho Middle School and Hill Roberts Elementary School. Lees Pond Park, off of Route 1, attracts many locals for activities such as fishing, basketball, baseball, and swimming in one of the city pools. The South Attleboro Lions Club on Highland Avenue hosts the annual Lees Pond Festival.

Route 1 hosts many businesses and fast food restaurants. Depending on the boundaries, South Attleboro is home to approximately 7-10 thousand people.
