Edgewood County Park and Natural Preserve is located about 1.5 miles east of Interstate 280 on Edgwood Road, near Redwood City and San Carlos.
The serpentine grasslands of Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve are famous for their magnificent displays of wildflowers each spring. The park’s location, within easy access to Interstate 280 and Edgewood Road, makes this beautiful display readily accessible to the population centers of the San Francisco Peninsula. The park’s 467 acres of woodlands and grasslands afford wonderful hiking and sightseeing opportunities.
The Bay Checkerspot Butterfly, once an inhabitant of the entire Bay Area, and now listed as an endangered species, is found only in this park, in Kirby Canyon in southern Santa Clara County, Coyote Ridge in San Jose, and San Bruno Mountain State and County Park in northern San Mateo County.
