Womble Park - Holly Springs, NC

There’s some brand new playground equipment afoot in the Triangle, and we would definitely be remiss if we didn’t check it out and post about it!

Earlier this year, the Town of Holly Springs announced they were bringing some upgrades to Holly Springs’ most used playground, the one at Womble Park. Our kids give these upgrades two thumbs up. 👍👍

There are generally 3 large playground structures - 1 for younger kids, 2 geared for older kids. There are also baby swings, regular swings, and 2 tandem swings. There are a few benches, a pavilion, and some nice shade from trees. Don’t miss the small pond just past the playground with ducks, geese, and turtles.

One improvement we were very impressed by was the communication board you can see in the last picture here.

A few other logistics:

• There are bathrooms.

• Generally stroller friendly.

• The playground surface is the nice squishy ground, but beware once you get off of it - there are sweetgum trees and every single member of our family ate it at least once on their pokey balls.

• There is a ditch somewhat close to the playground, so just watch your littles and make sure they don’t fall in.

• Parking is a bit… interesting. First, make sure you go to the correct entrance - enter off of Stinson Ave., not Grigsby. Then, there are some lots, but we actually ended up parking in a grass field with spray painted parking spots right by the playground. Womble Park is mostly athletic fields, so I guess they try to put parking wherever they can.

The last thing I have to say about this park is it’s BUSY. We tried to get there early, and it was STILL busy. We’ve actually never even posted about Womble until now because of this. I remember checking it out during the height of COVID and just driving away (with a screaming Peter in the back because what monster of a parent drives by a playground and then doesn’t let their kid out 🙈) because it was just packed and I couldn’t bring myself to be around that many people at that point. At this point, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but if you’re looking for something more secluded, this is not your spot.
