Wife and I spent a few hours walking some of the trails. They are wide, well marked and well maintained. A nice place to escape and enjoy the beauty of the area. Staff is great and we enjoyed talking to them.

Had a wonderful talk on butterflies and damselflies and other pollinators under the outdoor pavilion at Broadmoor wildlife sanctuary. The talk was followed by a slow stroll through the meadows to see what we learned thriving in real life!

It was a typical nippy afternoon in New England. The leaves were wonderful shades of red and orange and yellow. The water is always tranquil as it makes all things quiet down. We liked walking the trails and sharing nice talk. I love hearing the...More
