Wallingford Playfield has long been a popular neighborhood gathering place for tennis, picnics, wading pool splashing in summer, ball games, and playing. The play area, renovated in 2019, offers a variety of opportunities to slide, swing and spin. The play equipment provides areas for children from 2 to 5 years old and 5 to 12 with equipment that meets current safety standards and ensures accessibility to all children ages in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 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.
