Waluga Park, East

Kids’ play area at Waluga ParkWhat’s to Love: Waluga park (east off Quarry Rd.) has a quaint little playground designed specifically for kids 6 and younger. The playground has a structure for older kids, and one for younger toddlers. We just sort of stumbled onto this property by accident, and it’s worth a stop if you’re in the area. There is plenty of shade, a drinking fountain with really good water, a covered picnic area, and a paved biking path. Because it’s tucked into a wooded neighborhood, this park feels like it’s out in the country.

Very nice picnic shelter at Waluga ParkCaveats: Not much to complain about here. This is a nice little park for a picnic and some playtime. The actual playground is pretty small, so I suppose it could get crowded pretty easily. The day we were there (Saturday morning), we had the area pretty much to ourselves.
