Dawn until Dusk
Edgewood Park is Surrey's newest neighborhood park, providing space for all to connect through nature and play.
Edgewood Park’s playground includes accessibility play which features a roller table, a universal spinner, a dish swing and wide slide. Many of these elements encourage co-operative play that engages one or multiple children. Edgewood Park’s multi-sports courts accommodate both basketball and hockey. A table tennis setup is also nearby.
Residents can also enjoy the grassy field, walking loop, picnic table, and wildlife corridor and pollinator garden that provides an opportunity for park users to learn about the City’s biodiversity. Native species were chosen for diversity, character and drought-tolerance.
Acquired in 1951, this 3.9 hectare (9.6 acres) park served as the location for the Sunnyside Saddle Club for many decades. It is now in the middle of a rapidly growing neighbourhood and has been transformed to provide more amenities for the community. The park was designed through a community consultation process, including two open houses (November 28, 2017 and May 8, 2018) and a community site meeting on February 3, 2020.
