About the Carol Edwards Center

The Carol Edwards Center is a main staple in the City of Woodinville, not just for what it provides to the city, but the name that it carries: “The Carol Edwards Center.” Carol Edwards, known as “the mother of Woodinville,” did so much for her community from the time she came to Woodinville in 1976, including starting the Woodinville Weekly, All Fools Day Parade, Teen Northshore, and the Farmers Market. Sadly, the “Mother of Woodinville” passed away in 2007. The city named the Carol Edwards Center building in her honor, in hopes of carrying on her dreams of providing a sense of community to Woodinville. The Northshore YMCA has operated the center since 2011.
