Waverly Fairgrounds or Waverly Park was the home of the Elizabeth Resolutes baseball club. The Resolutes participated in the National Association 1873 season, so Waverly is considered a major league ballpark by those who count the NA as a major league.

The park was located in a community called Waverly, which was bordered by Lower Road, Haynes Avenue, and Frelinghuysen Street. The site is now split by Weequahic Park in Newark[1] and B'nai Jeshuron Cemetery in Elizabeth.[2]

The Resolutes played all of eight games at Waverly, all losses, during their forlorn 2-21 season.
