Great spot for bird watching and hiking. Well maintained building with restrooms. Quiet and relaxing, not overrun with yahoos and dogs.

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.
