Broad Meadow Brook is the largest urban nature sanctuary in New England. With over 400 acres, featuring more than five miles of marked trails, we offer programs for people of all ages, a gift shop, book store, nature exhibits, and meeting space. We also serve as a visitor information center for the National Park Service's John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor.
Our Nature Center and restrooms are universally accessible. Our Sensory Trail features a post/rope guide over packed gravel/boardwalk with an available audio tour, Braille signs, and a tactile map as it is our goal to make our sanctuaries welcoming and accessible for all to enjoy.
Trails are open daily from dawn to dusk.
