Parks & Recreation

Parks and open space provide each of us the opportunity to escape from the stresses of everyday life into a free environment that promotes personal well being, family growth, and social opportunities.  We are fortunate to have a wide range of parks in the City and nearby.  Visit and enjoy your local parks and trails!

Learn More About Edgewood's Parks and Open Space!
Most residents are familiar with Edgemont Park, which is the City's only active park. Some may also be aware of the Nelson Nature Park and even the Nelson Farm Park and Community Garden, which are both classified as "passive parks".  However, there are other park and open space properties you may not know about.  This map shows the locations of park and open space properties owned by the citizens of Edgewood.
