WELCOME TO EDWARDSVILLE!
The City of Edwardsville is located in southwest Wyandotte County, just north of the Kansas River and just south of the Kansas Speedway. With a population of about 4,500 folks, Edwardsville offers a small-town feel with close proximity to metropolitan amenities and attractions. Edwardsville was first surveyed in 1869 and was located on land owned by Delaware Indian Chief Half Moon. Our most famous resident was Junius Groves, a freed slave known as the Potato of the World in the early 20th Century due to the fact that his western Wyandotte County farm produced more bushels of potatoes per acre than any of his international competitors. The city was officially incorporated in 1915. With an active Parks & Recreation Department and highly-regarded public safety employees, the City of Edwardsville is a great town to raise a family. We're happy you've visited us and encourage you to reach out to Edwardsville City Hall at 913-356-6000 if you have any questions!
OUTDOOR MOVIE NIGHT & FIELD DAY
Edwardsville Parks & Rec is bringing outdoor movie screenings back to town beginning on Friday, June 10. The City will be screening 1993's The Sandlot inside the ball fields at the City Park (1200 Blake St.), beginning around 8:30 (or whenever it gets dark enough to screen). The next day, a Fish Fry Field Day is being planned to take place at the park as well, which will include food, games, and more! There is no registration or payment required for the movie night and registration details for the field day will be released soon. Hoping for good weather for a movie under the starts on June 10 and for our other summer movie series on July 8 and August 12!
