Edgemoor Gardens is a 1940's community of row townhomes nestled between Edgewood Hills, Gordon Heights, and Edgemoor Terrace. It is within walking distance of the U.S. Postoffice and within a short drive of Bellevue Park and Fox Point State Park. I-95 is easily accessible. The City of Wilmington is 4 miles away and Philadelphia less than 30 miles. Bus No. 24 runs through the center of the community on Rysing Drive.
The Edgemoor Gardens Civic Association has existed for more than 30 years. It was incorporated for the second time in the early 1980s. Its main function is maintenance of the open spaces.
EGCA is working hard to upgrade and improve the neighborhood by maintaining the open spaces and working with CIA (County Code) to clean up properties which are not up to code.
Edgemoor Gardens is a densely constructed family type community of 382 row townhomes, suitable for very small families with very young children, young professionals, retired couples, and singles. The open spaces provide grassy areas for young children to run and play. Older children and teens need parents willing to take them to facilities and activities suitable for their age group. Programs and services are also provided at the Edgemoor Resource House.
