We have lived here for ten years. Edgewood used to be a small somewhat semi-rural community; quiet, not much traffic, large properties with horses, goats, cows and llamas. We are one of those. While it "slightly still" has those fine attributes, we have been overrun with commuter traffic and "5"..... "FIVE" incredibly huge apartment complexes on the main drag on Meridian, compliments of our wonderful Edgewood City Council. I was told that "every" community in the area "had" to take on large developments of housing to meet a mandated quota. Just call us East Tacoma.

Edgewood is amazing! Being a small, suburb south of Seattle, everyone knows each other. Having a small community means that everyone is friendly to each other. There is no better town than Edgewood.
Great family environment and still a lot of open land areas. Good parks and schools as part of the Puyallup School District. Retail corridor is good and continuing to grow with new businesses being built. More affordable housing and multi-family housing is being built. Part of Pierce County yet directly next to King County. Great freeway access to multiple cities; Tacoma, Seattle and other suburbs such as Auburn, Federal Way and Sumner with great restaurant and shopping areas along with entertainment right near by. Many small businesses in the area that are family owned.
