A great place for a wlk that takes you into nature. A very nice admin building with lots of local ecological information. The trails are well marked.

Broadmoor is typical of most Mass Audubon sanctuaries as it has well kept/well marked trails that let you know if you are heading toward or away from the visitor center (or parking lot if there is no visitor center) The area is very scenic and has boardwalks going through some of the marshy areas to better get a view of...

This is a beautiful spot to take the family and get a nice walk. There is an educational center and restrooms available. It's a good place to see birds and wildlife.

It is always fun going there. There is a wonderful wooden walk way that goes over the wet lands, so one is close to the birds and pond life. I have walked there and found an old foundation of a water mill by the stream. There is quite and peace.

With our 4 and 2 yr olds, We really enjoyed the boardwalk, spotting turtles, climbing rocks, watching water falls. And all on a 1.5 mile walk. The composting toilets were a great education for us all. The lady in the nature centre was v friendly and helpful. We will be back.

A great combination of wetlands, meadow and woods, with many trails offering different length walks. Be sure to have a map, as the trails get winding. A good place for all ages; little kids can enjoy climbing on (safe) rocky areas.

Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary offers a variety of vistas on its multiple acres of land which include the shore of the Charles River, a terminal moraine, pines, deciduous trees, birds, and the remains of a water mill. The trails are clearly marked and you can walk for fifteen minutes or 2-3 hours and not retrace your steps. There is also a... More

I got mixed feelings from our trip to Broadmoor. We went in mid-September in the late morning. We didn't really see much wildlife: one turtle, one frog, and one bird on the wing. It had rained that morning, and some of the trails were somewhat slippery because of the wet leaves on the ground. I also didn't think the trails... More
