Conservation land right in the center of Athol that includes car top access to the Millers River, a park landscaped with native plant varieties, benches and picnic tables welcoming visitors, and a short loop trail. Meandering through an area of young woodland and the open land of the Cass Meadow Wildlife Management Area, that trail includes short spurs to the south shore of the Millers River and a longer spur leading deeper into the meadow. 

It is a trail that makes one forget for a time how close one is to civilization. Listen to the birds, revel in the grasses and wildflowers, watch the swooping dragonflies…. 

Named for the late Alan Rich, a long-time Athol Selectman and political leader, the park was developed as part of the Mass Urban River Visions initiative. Cass Meadow is managed by the Mass Division of Fisheries and Game and Town of Athol Open Space Committee.

Directions:

West end of Athol center, Main Street, on north side just before bridge.
