Wildflowers fill the grassland meadows from March to June

Located on the edge of the San Francisco Peninsula suburbia with the coastal Santa Cruz Mountains as a backdrop, Edgewood Park and Natural Preserve is an excellent place to enjoy a variety of terrains and views.

Spring time is a great time to marvel in the wildflower displays of the grassy meadows at the park’s higher elevations. In the summer the park provides shade under the canopy of the oak woodland on the cool east facing slopes.

Explore the park’s ten miles of trails for yourself, or choose our 1.8 mile looping journey from the main parking area and education center which is mostly under partial shady tree cover, except for the topmost views over the sweeping serpentine grass meadows.

Nearby to the main parking area you’ll find picnic areas. A guided nature walk is available on the third Saturday of each month and during wildflower season (mid-March to mid-June) the park offers free docent-led wildflower tours at weekends.
