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.

Grey, Drizzly, Warm

Well, at least it is warm.

1:52 p.m. conditions:
47.5 degrees F and steady;
90% humidity and steady;
29.18" of Hg pressure and falling;
the Cascades Brook is running strong at 5.4" (up considerably even from the over 4" yesterday!);
the air is still with little shifting every so often, o MPH;
the sky is grey but broken into patches of low and high altitude cover;
the USFS Fire Danger Class is LOW;
somehow the rain never mounted strong enough to register on the rain gauge, there has been mist, fog, and drizzle, but no real rain to tip the gauge.

The Cascades are running, and the ice floe is breaking up with the warmth and the warmer waters.

The trails are all open, but very very wet, and in some spots the soil is very deep and mucky, so waterproof footwear is an absolute must.
