A green space jewel set on the Hamden/New Haven border, Edgerton Park has been a part of
the New Haven parks system since 1965.
How We Evolved: In 1972, the Edgerton Park Conservancy was formed to encourage and give support to local gardeners and park users. The Conservancy works collaboratively with the city and other groups to ensure a vibrant park. Over the years, the
Park's initial purpose has expanded to include preserving the park, supporting environmental awareness, and providing education programs for elementary school children that enhance their connections between nature and the arts.
