Legion Park


The 14.7 acre Legion or "waterfront" Park is located on the shore of  Big Waverly Lake just off County Highway 9.  The park includes a swimming beach, two fishing docks, a swimming dock, and a boat launch.  The park has a tennis court, a basketball court, two lighted volleyball courts, 6 horseshoe pits, and a lighted softball field with bleachers and an electronic scoreboard.  There are swings, and plenty of new playground equipment for smaller children.  Picnic benches (8 in the outside pavilion) and four grills, a new bandstand and restrooms make the Legion park an ideal place for family and group activities. A covered and closed pavilion with kitchen facilities is available for rent thru the City.  Information on rental can be found below. Call 763-658-4217 to find out about availability.


The  Legion Park is the location of many community events including the annual Waverly Daze, the Fire Department Spring Softball Tournament, the Waverly Boosters' summer recreation program, and other softball and volleyball tournaments.  


A new Ball field fence, constructed in part with a grant from the Minnesota Twins, and batting cages were completed in 2018.  Rip-rap was replaced along the lakeshore in 2019.
