Waverley Amateur Athletic Association's (WAAA) mission is to support outdoor recreation and sport in our community.
The WAAA is a volunteer group whose primary focus is to maintain and improve Waverley's Charles L. McDonald Sports Park. The group is comprised of approximately 15 board members and has been in existence since 1963. The park is situated on 130 acres of crown land which is leased yearly from the Department of Natural Resources. The park has 7km's of trails, of which 2km border scenic Lake Thomas. The WAAA board has many new enthusiastic board members who are keen to rejuvenate the park. Besides all the organizations who use the park, there are individual walkers, bikers, naturalists, bird watchers, swimmers, photographers, family picnics, etc. Waverley has a reputation of being a physically active community; let's keep it this way and encourage more people to participate in physical activity as a means of promoting health and preventing disease.
The WAAA celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013 and is always seeking new members to help us with the McDonald Sports Park as well a to help promote active lifestyles in our community.
