Edgemoor Park was one of the parks I spent my summers at growing up. The pool was always popular and the playground consisted of an amazing wood structure. I wish we had pictures of how it was before the new playground – it was amazing.

The skate park was pretty cool. It was dedicated in the memory of Ryan Woodward, a teenager who was struck and killed by a car on the way to the skate park in 2009. We loved the memorial bench – how fitting for the memory of a teen who loved skateboarding!
We had a blast playing at the skate park. We had a 'who's bottom goes the furthest' contest with the neighborhood kids. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time!
The park was very busy on this beautiful evening. It was probably one of the most popular parks we've been to on our adventure. We had a great time!
Mom Tips: This is a beautiful park, and really close to the Rockwell Branch Library. It'd be a great place to have a picnic, play and library afternoon! The rec center also has a lot of great classes, check them out here: http://www.wichita.gov/ParkandRec/Pages/default.aspx
Kid Tips: The boys keep asking to go back to the skate park; they had so much fun!
