Park Review: Raleigh's Baileywick Park

Posted December 29, 2011

Baileywick Park in north Raleigh right near the intersection of Creedmoor Road and Interstate 540 isn't a large park.

But, whenever I run into moms who live in this part of town, they always say they're frequent visitors to its playground.

The large playground area features traditional play pieces for younger and older kids, along with a sand area and bouncy spring animals to ride on. The surface under all of the equipment is mulch. Baileywick Park, Raleigh Park Review: Raleigh's Baileywick Park

You'll also find two ball fields, picnic shelters, bathrooms and a walking path. The bathrooms are open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. The park, like all parks in Raleigh, is open from dawn to dusk.

I shot this video of the park earlier this year (thus the leaves on the trees). For a closer look at the park, watch the video.

Baileywick Park is at 9501 Baileywick Rd. in Raleigh.

    We love that park. My youngest just mastered the monkey bars there! I agree lots of parties are there, especially end of year for school. And the bees and flies are significant pests there, we've tried to have picnic dinners (convenient for dh to meet us coming home from work) but have had to walk around and eat to avoid them. But I like that it has big swings which another nearby park, Honeycutt, lacks.

    This is a very nice park, and the 2 shelters can be rented out for events at a very nice prive. However, make sure you schedule your event in mild climate months. :)
