Waverly Place Playground - Cary
From Sarah C.:
While in the general area for other errands, I stopped by with D and my 13 month old niece L to explore the playground. We could see it from the parking lot and were quite excited. Brand new play equipment with an artificial turf lawn beneath and fully fenced in. My only hesitation were the large warning signs posted stating the equipment was designed for the 5-12 age group and that adult supervision was required. We proceeded anyhow as I certainly was not going to disappoint my 2 year old by telling him we couldn't play on the awesome new playground I had been telling him about on the drive over and now was within our reach.
If you happen to notice the orange cones in the photo above of the play structure, the slide/glider portion of the structure has been removed. The cones are covering it's connections to the ground.
To park in the lot closest to the playground, access the center via New Waverly Place from either Tryon or Kildaire Farm Roads. Follow it around to a lot in the back of the center between Buildings A and B (for reference, Whole Foods is at the back end of Building B). The lot here has direct access to the Promenade area including the playground which is beside Building A.
There are water fountains within the playground area. We did not see restrooms nearby or during our stroll around the Promenade to the upper storefronts. Many of the storefronts are still vacant. I imagine there will be some sort of restrooms accessible to the public once the new shops & restaurants open.
If you end up at the Center on a day where the weather isn't quite nice enough for outdoor play, there is a Chick-fil-a with an indoor play area in one of the outparcels fronting Tryon Road.
