My husband and I took a hike at Broad Brook Meadow Conservation in the fall. The trails are well marked, nice views and met friendly hikers along the way. No need to travel 45 min from Worcester for nice hiking trails - this place is close by and very nice.

They have train table, some legos for little one... More

this place is such a surprise, as soon as you start on the trails you are away from the city and feel such peace and harmony, it is a great place to take little ones to show them nature

Lots of trails to choose from. Easy to walk. No "views" and can hear traffic nearby. Nice area set aside for children to play. Worcester residents are free! Employees are all extremely pleasant and helpful.

Just love the walking trails...a nest of nature in the city. In the winter, it is fun to see critter tracks in the snow. Great place for kids and families...or just you if you need a break and need to immerse yourself in nature. The folks who care for Broadmeadow Brook are just the best...devoted to making nature accessible to... More
