Tricentennial Park and Singing Falls on the Blackstone River - 7/28/2021 12:14:24 AM

In this video, I showcase the beauty of the Tricentennial Park, located at the Singing Falls on the Blackstone River. This park is in Sutton Massachusetts. To find it with a GPS, look for 72 Blackstone Street, Sutton MA.

I've been taking photos and videos of the Singing Falls for many, many years. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, when I visited this time, on July 27, 2021, it was in poor maintenance. The walk down to the downstream side of the Blackstone River had debris on it. The path by the picnic area was overgrown.

There is an informational sign about the Blackstone River. That sign used to overlook the Blackstone River so you could look at the river while you read the information about the river and canal. Now the overgrowth is so bad you can't even see the river while you are reading the sign.

I think some maintenance needs to be done here
