Waymarket Park Description

Waymarket Park is a great park for toddlers and preschoolers. The only swings that are offered are bucket swings and there are two great side-by-side slides that are not too tall.

There is also a sand area with a digging crane.

The see-saw is great for all ages. My daughter loved it, but it is low enough to the ground that even young kids can play on it.

There are still a few features for the big kids too. My 10 year old loved the Monkey Bars.

Beyond Waymarket Park

From Waymarket Park a paved trail connects to Briarwood Circle and Briarwood Mall. Be sure to use caution crossing Briarwood Circle on foot, pedestrian crossing is not common. The first time we used the trail, we found it easiest to do from Waymarket to be able to locate it easily from the mall.
