Drinking fountains Play Area Tennis Courts Soccer Fields Restrooms Wading Pools


Wallingford Playfield has long been a popular neighborhood gathering place for tennis, picnics, wading pool splashing in summer, ball games, and playing. A deluxe play area, completed in 2004, includes a play structure specially designed for two- to five-year-olds, with a variety of slides. The wading pool was renovated then as well, and all elements are wheelchair accessible. Extensive landscaping surrounds the wading pool, and a crushed rock path around the playfield connects to the paths on the park's east end. The park's short, steep west border is a native plant garden. Picnic tables among the trees, benches, and sitting boulders provide plenty of places to sit and read, rest, or watch children play.
