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.

It's the good stuff!
We see that we had an early hiker out here already today. While the parking area is not cleared, the trails are full of light, fluffy snow. If you have snowshoes or cross-country skis that have been gathering dust, c'mon out!
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.
