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.

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

Broadmoor is a treasure in Natick. It's a beautifully maintained Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary and such a peaceful place to spend some time outdoors on a beautiful day.

A great half-day outing for individuals, couples, groups of adults, or families with children old enough to keep up and appreciate what they're seeing. Especially worth it on a Sunday or weekday in late spring, late summer, or early fall. Take binoculars, cameras, and insect repellent, and give yourself (ideally) 2-2.5 hours. Best time is morning or early afternoon. As... More

A beautiful setting to get some exercise, learn about nature, a feel close to the seasons. The wooden walkway over the marsh is ideal for spotting turtles.

Lovely place to go for walks, Trails are well marked and maintained. I have found Broadmoor to be just the place to go to de-stress myself while enjoying the peace and harmony of nature.
