The Edgewood Parks, Recreation, Open Space, & Trails Plan
Parks and recreation contribute to a high quality of life by providing a full range of recreational opportunities for all segments of the population from competitive activities, such as sports and games, to more passive activities, including walking and enjoying nature. Attractive, well-maintained recreation areas also contribute to the quality of life by providing open space, wildlife habitat, and groundwater recharge areas for our community.
