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.

We are seeing blue skies here at the Lodge on and off today, as things begin to dry out a bit. The first evidence of that: our fire danger is back up to LOW as of this morning!
Today the brook is running at 4.5 inches after .2 inches more of rain overnight.
Take Rt. 122 N/Chandler Street to Tatnuck Square. At the 2nd set of lights at Pleasant Street, go straight onto Mower Street between Sovereign and Flagship banks. At the Y, bear right onto Olean Street, and look for the Cascading Waters sign 1/2 mile on your left.
Take Route 31 S towards Paxton. Take a left onto Reservoir Street (when it splits from 31). Follow past all the reservoirs into Worcester. Cascading Waters is less than 1/2 mile from the city line on your right.
