As the third oldest town in Illinois, Edwardsville is proud of its history, and it shows.
Edwardsville has devoted more than 140 acres to public green spaces spread over 13 city parks, most of which are neighborhood parks that make a leisurely afternoon or evening in the park just a few minutes away. The community also enjoys indoor recreational activities at the YMCA, which also offers early childhood development programs, daycare and summer camps.
There’s never a shortage of fun things to do in Edwardsville. For those seeking a big-city experience, St. Louis with its arts, professional sports, theme parks, and iconic Gateway Arch, is only half an hour away.
So you’ll never miss out.
