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.

Windy days

11:00am Weather Observations

The Cascades Brook is running at 2.4" in both channels. Perhaps more interestingly, closer examination in full sun and a little time shows a number of trees, some already deceased, blew over when we had wet soils and strong winds. Nothing blocked the trail or the cart path so they did not yell out for immediate attention. It is fun to watch the stream and its banks over the years to see how very dynamic and changing this area is without any outside intervention.

The USFS fire danger class is back up to MODERATE. The lack of rainfall, fresh fallen leaves and wind bring that about.

Temperature 49.5°F and rising;
Humidity 51% and falling;
Pressure 29.65" and steady;
Sunny skies;
No recorded precipitation;
Wind gusting to 7.0mph.
