Wawa Things to Do: 13 reviews and 13 photos
Mr Vallee Park is a quiet and beautiful place just a few blocks from downtown Wawa. Mr Vallee, a local resident, turned his attention to the community and the children who lived here after his retirement. Wanting to provide a safe place to explore and enjoy, he began by clearing debris which was polluting the now beautiful clear waters of Wawa Creek.
Mr Vallee then built flights of wooden and cement stairs to climb the bluff beyond the creek, hauling lumber and buckets of concrete up the steep slope by hand. The completed staircase allows visitors an easy access to the top of the bluff where a magnificent view of Wawa rewards the hiker. Our introductory photo to these Wawa pages was taken in the late afternoon from this vantage point.
Directions: From Hwy. 101 (Mission Road), turn onto Magpie Road at the Big Bird Inn. Follow south to Montreal Avenue and turn right. Parking is along the gravel roadside. A walking path follows Wawa Creek to the footbridge and entrance to the park.
