Hickman Park, the newest park in Edmonds, is in Southwest Edmonds near Edmonds Way at 23700 104th Ave W. (GPS: 47°47.063' N 122°22.379' W)
This 5.5 acre park, on the site of the old Woodway Elementary School, opened in August of 2009. It is the first new park in Edmonds since 1973. It has a children's play area, a picnic shelter and a large grass area with a few picnic tables. There is a wheel-chair accessible trail around the park and a short trail through the woods with exercise stations.
This is one of Edmonds' dog-friendly parks. Dogs are allowed in this park on the pathways and trails as long as you obey the leash and scoop laws of Edmonds.
The grass area has a softball backstop, and can be used for soccer. Bring your own net and play volleyball or badminton. There are two basketball hoops on a small concrete sports court, and several benches around the park.
The play area is named after local resident Chris Wedes whose clown character, J. P. Patches, was the star of one of the longest-running local children's shows in TV history.Hickman Park Play area
