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.

At long last, a blanket of snow!
Sure, it is more like a half an inch, but it is snow and it is covering the ground, and with that Winter is truly here!

As of 9:07 a.m. the conditions are:
31 degrees;
28.79" of Hg pressure and steady;
USFS Fire Danger is NONE;
The Cascades are a frozen ice floe;
The Cascades Brook is still running with the banks and obstructions coated in ice;
and everything is finally coated in snow!

Also, due to your concerns, faithful Cascades folk, we have sent along a note to the Cook's Pond Association about the severely depressed pond level and the full throat-ed flow out of the dam.

Also, following up on a tip/complaint by some hikers yesterday morning we requested and received a police visit for some extremely dubious activity at the base of the Cascades. Rest assured, descriptions were taken, plates were copied and the car that scooted off had a cruiser following behind. Thanks for the assist in keeping the area in good shape and uninviting to mischief! We can't do it without you!
