Unfortunately, we weren’t able to stay to see the restored buildings etc, because we were on a long drive. We just stopped off to use the picnic facilities. There is a very pleasant picnic ground with many picnic tables under large live oak shade trees. There are also rest room facilities and plenty of space for kids to run around.

We have been there several times. Very helpful people to help teach the local history and show historical building. Also several trails to hike, even down to the riverside, and lots of wildlife to see. Lots of local events take place onsite. The boy scouts also have many events there, and do service projects for them.

I take my children to Old Waynesborough Park to have a picnic and walk the trails along the river. The picnic area is nice and shady. We love visiting the historical buildings as well.

While the main attraction might be the historic buildings, we bypassed these and went on a couple of the hiking trails. Here's the deal: the trails are a little overgrown in areas, and the trail markers are not clear in areas, causing you to backtrack once or twice. HOWEVER, this is a free park, with requests for donations AND the trails are interesting, not too difficult, and offer variety for families who may want a shorter or longer hike. The positives far outweigh slightly overgrown trails. We will return again and again.
