Ways to Play
So Many Ways to Play in the City of Williamsburg!
The City of Williamsburg Parks and Recreation Department was established in 1969. The department operates ten parks, a recreation center and a variety of quality athletic leagues, classes, programs, events and services designed to improve the quality of life for the community.
Williamsburg Parks and Recreation hosts a variety of events, including Pups in Pastels in April, Kids Fishing Derby in June, Canine Carnival in October, and several pickleball tournaments throughout the year.
Waller Mill Park provides 4 trails throughout our 2,700 acre park to choose from. Our wooded hiking trails provide 6 ¼ miles for a picturesque walk with water and wooded views. A two-mile asphalt bike trail offers a scenic connection between Mooretown and Rochambeau Roads. A short hike from the park along the asphalt bike trail will bring you to the Lookout Tower, which offers a panoramic view of the water and woodlands.
Fitness opportunities at the Quarterpath Recreation Center include classes, group exercise, and our popular free walking club.
