Edwards Park, at 904 N. Main Street, is being redeveloped into a new City of Hendersonville park.

A new ADA-accessible miniature golf course named for Laura E. Corn will be constructed and reimagined on the Edwards Park site. A concession stand and public restrooms will be constructed along with a playground. Local artists and organizations are collaborating to blend old features from the Boyd Park site as well as creating new art features. The newly designed Edwards Park and the reimagined Laura E. Corn Mini-Golf construction is expected to be completed in the fall of 2023.

Edwards Park, named for Mayor Albert V. Edwards, originally opened in 1933 as a center for activities of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. The existing scout huts will remain at the site. A new bicycle corral in partnership with the Blue Ridge Bicycle Club is planned along with the new park amenities.
