Whalley Park was created in 2012 in honor of John Whalley 4th by John Whalley 3rd, founder, owner, and President of Whalley Computer Associates and his wife, Kathy. The Park was donated by the Whalley's in 2012. The park is a 70-acre parcel of land with 35 acres of recreational space for public use on 42 Powder Mill Road in Southwick, MA. The Great Brook flows through some of the underdeveloped areas of the park. The fields are irrigated with water coming from three wells within the park.
The park is located adjacent to the three local Southwick public schools, the high school, and the Southwick Rec Center athletic fields, allowing parents with multiple children to walk from one child's game to the other. The park is a center for many local events enjoyed by many in the town, such as the Fourth of July fireworks!
The park is available and used by residents of all ages. From youth teams' practices and games to adult leagues, the park welcomes all.
