Connect with Edgewater Partnership


The Edgewater District is a healthy, safe and vibrant community in West Salem where diverse families and businesses can thrive together. Neighbors and community partners collaborate on a variety of efforts to strengthen the Edgewater District in the West Salem Neighborhood. The group is working to increase community connections, cultivate a safe and healthy environment and enhance neighborhood pride.

The activities below are some of the ways you can get involved.

Neighborhood celebrations

Connect with your neighbors and strengthen your community with events of all sizes. You can invite a few people on your street for popsicles in your front yard or to a larger event at a community location.

Monthly walking cruises

In Edgewater, neighbors and partners host monthly walking cruises highlighting a different feature of this unique neighborhood followed by snacks and conversation.  Walks are typically about one and a half miles. Past walk themes have included Ancient Secrets of Edgewater, Urban Gardens, Little Free Libraries and Cool House Friday.

Beautification projects

When a neighborhood is well cared for, it shows. A beautification project is an excellent way to get to know your neighbors, increase the safety and beauty of your neighborhood, and improve property values.
