Ed Yerha Park (Formerly White Oak Park) - Cary, NC

And the Town of Cary parks updates roll on: welcome to the completely renovated and now reopened playground at Ed Yerha Park! Formerly White Oak Park, this small park is nestled amongst the trees and between a few neighborhoods in western Cary. (Two throwback photos of what the playground used to look like are included at the end.)


Many changes have happened with this renovation, including:


• A shift from a mulch-based ground to the poured-in squishy ground.


• Shade coverings! (This park was a scorcher in the summer, so hoping these will change this up!)


• A stand-alone mini music center with drums and chimes.


• One of those spin buckets that your kid just loves to be spun in and then walks all dizzy crazy when they get out. 😂


• A few lower-to-the-ground accessible features, including the large swing disk.


• The play structure designed for ages 5-12 is now rope-based.


• A play station in the sand pit. (Sand pit was kept from the old playground.)


A few features remain the same:


• Small covered pavilion with picnic tables right by the playground.


• Another larger covered pavilion with picnic tables and bathrooms not far from the playground and next to a giant field.


• Benches in the playground.


• Pickleball courts.


• Basketball court.


• Greenway access.


And a small other note, the parking lot for this playground is not large so there is always a possibility that it could fill up.
