Edgewood Community Park Phase 1

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

The City of Edgewood will develop 18 vacant acres into a signature community park. Development includes a half mile loop trail, an inclusive destination playground, a picnic shelter, grass amphitheater, restroom, multi-use programmable space, and a permanent site for the iconic 1902 Edgewood-Nyholm Windmill that will be used to generate power for the new park. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project will be passive and active recreation.
