Edith Morley park is nestled between an office park and some percolation ponds. You might think that was a tough spot to be in, but the City of Campbell workers have done an exceptional job of landscaping this park.
The coordinates are of the park sign. The park offers a wide green lawn to the street.
A picnic area sits between the lawn and the demonstration wetlands. Further down the path is the boardwalk into the wetlands.
Inside the wetland area are more boardwalks, benches and a babbling brook.
Nearby there are ponds with ducks and geese. In one corner of the park is a community garden.
There are restrooms but no playground or sports facilities. It's all very nice, particularly considering that at one time the site was a grungy drive-in movie lot. The landscape architect was Phil Singer. In the center of the park is a plaque that explains who Edith was...
Edith Morley was a dominant force in the development of parks and open space in the City of Campbell. She was a charter member of the City's Parks and Recreation commission where she served from 1964 to 1988. Edith Morley park is named in her honor.
