Cascading Waters can be found at 135 Olean Street on the eastern edge of Worcester's northwest parklands, the Cascades. The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts. Home to countless species of plants and animals, the Cascades are open to passive recreation year-round.

The mice are heading in

We came out this morning to find that the mice think that winter are coming, and hope to hibernate inside. One was swimming in our iced tea pitcher!

(We brought him outside, where he cleaned off his paws and headed for what we hope will be winter quarters in the stone wall.)

It was a very busy weekend for hikers! We had cars in and out of the parking lot all day every day (kudos to those who pulled over enough to make space for multiple cars), and we saw lots of people coming through.

At 9 am, it is 53 degrees and rising under cloudy skies
93% humidity and steady
The barometer stands at 30.21 inches and is steady
There is NO fire danger for central Massachusetts
