Regardless of the weather, there is always something of interest to see at Broadmoor. The boardwalk gives you easy access for carriages and safe footing for everyone.

Excellent place for a good walk / hike. There are about 9 miles of trails at Broadmoor. The walks are very easy and scenery constantly changing. There are a variety of different nature related programs. Check the website for activities. Members enter for free

Such a lovely spot: right along the Charles River in the historic section of Natick, known as South Natick. Almost never crowded, so lovely for contemplative walks. Wonderful gift store, too. All the while supporting the efforts of the Audubon Society.

This is a really nice sanctuary very close to "civilization". The trails offer quite a bit of variety in scenery. Depending on when you go, you'll find all sorts of animals in the water. Definitely worth a visit!

A great big peaceful place just minutes from home. Walking trails year round and a snow shoeing paradise in the winter. So close but makes one fell so far away from everyday life.

Broadmoor is a truly wonderful series of nature trails and some nice hikes that leave you feeling completely removed from your suburban surroundings. There are so many wonderful vistas, ponds, woods, fields and other beautiful nooks and crannies. The only thing that is a little...More
