The City of Edmond’s Parks and Recreation Department and City overview statement from the Edmond Plan IV states, “A community’s quality of life is determined by many cultural and natural dynamics. One of these dynamics is parks. Parks, greenways and open space create a network of social, recreational and educational activities throughout a community.”
Over the last ten years Edmond has grown from a 68,315 populated community to 81,405. The city has grown by over 13,000 individuals, almost a 20% increase in just under a decade. Even though the City has grown significantly and can no longer be considered a small town, there are still qualities of “small town life” present throughout the community. If the City continues to grow in population and economic strength over the next 10-20 years, park facilities will need to be addressed by adding to the number of parks and the types of amenities to meet the needs and demands of the citizens of Edmond.
