Welcome to the nature trail at Blackstone Gateway Park! Here you will find a series of nine educational signs along the trail as you explore your beautiful surroundings.
The City continues to work toward beautifying Worcester with the soon-to-be opened Blackstone Gateway Park. This nature-focused park will have approximately one half mile of accessible walking paths, elevated boardwalks and three bridges crossing the headwaters of the Blackstone River along McKeon Road. Along the trails and boardwalks, you will see observational platforms, kiosks and interpretive signage. These signs will provide historical and ecological information about the wildlife and plants in the area, as well as the Blackstone River and the role it played in the history of Worcester and the Blackstone Valley Corridor.
