The Cascades are 350 acres of park and conservation lands along the borders of Worcester, Paxton, and Holden, Massachusetts.

The Cascades Brook Runs!
It has been a long long time since we have heard running water at Cascading Waters.
There is no telling if it will still be running in the morning.
For the moment, anyway, we have running water in the bed of the brook.
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.
