Park Information

In 2021 this park was named in honor of the late Southgate Board Member Edwin A. Smith. Smith served on the District Board for 36 years (from 1976 to 2012) and was credited with helping guide the District through large periods of service area growth, program and facility development, financial sustainability, legislative advocacy and more. This park was previously named Countryside Community Park.

The park is a focal point for the community, most notably identified by its beautiful and dramatic white steel pavilion structures that provide shade over picnic areas. The park serves as the westerly trailhead for Tillotson Parkway, leading users to approximately 4.5 miles of landscaped pedestrian and biking pathways.

The park’s wide range of amenities makes it a perfect venue for large groups, parties, special events or group sports activities. On-site parking makes visiting the park convenient. At 12 acres in size, the site has plenty of activity areas, and it never feels cramped, so bring your group and enjoy your visit.
