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.

Enjoy the Sun!

We have sun!
Tomorrow we will have some sun and some rain, so enjoy the moment!
Due to the full sun after the rain you should see some really vivid greens out there today.

The weather as of 10:00 a.m.:
68.9 degrees F and rising;
93% humidity and falling;
29.32" of mercury and rising;
USFS Fire Danger Class is LOW;
Yesterday's rain here at the Lodge was 1.85", which is more than they received up at the airport.

It is not just this year that is overly wet.
Looking back, last year was even wetter, though this July was exceptional!

A big thanks to the crew from the United Way who broke down the 2009 Cascades Conservation Observation Outpost this past Thursday. They broke down the massive 18' x 36' tent, and hauled all of the poles and the massive canvas out of the woods.

You may also notice the three new cross braces on the sign posts up in Boynton Park's picnic area. They assembled those as well as we are planning for the return of the 4'x8' trail and open space map.
