Blackstone Gateway Park and Visitor Center

The park features about a half-mile of accessible walking paths, elevated boardwalks and three bridges crossing a section of the Middle River that runs into the headwaters of the Blackstone River. Included along the trails and boardwalks are observational platforms, kiosks and interpretive signage providing historical and ecological information about the Blackstone River and the role it played in the history of Worcester and the Blackstone Valley Corridor.

The Blackstone Heritage Corridor Visitor Center is a full service, multi-use facility, featuring a welcoming area, historic and cultural exhibits, a theater, restroom facilities, an adjacent passive recreation lawn and office, classroom and function space. The Visitor Center also houses the Central Region Headquarters for the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation.
