Carol Edwards Center History

The Carol Edwards Center is a main staple for the City of Woodinville, not just for what it provides to the city, but for the name that it carries: The Carol Edwards Center. Carol Edwards, “the mother of Woodinville” did so much for her community when she came to Woodinville in 1976. Her dreams were big: starting the Woodinville Weekly, All Fools Day Parade, Teen Northshore, and the Farmers Market. Just before her death in 2007, the city named the Carol Edwards Center after her, in hopes of carrying on Carol Edward's dreams of providing a sense of community to Woodinville.

A few years after opening the Carol Edwards Center the city had to make the tough choice of closing the center. The city, not wanting to give up on the dream of a community center, looked to local organizations to come forward to determine if they would have the resources to re-open the center. The Northshore Y stepped up. In January 2011, the Y took over the Carol Edwards Center to bring a community center back to Woodinville.

As an organization, the Northshore Y will keep Carol Edwards' dream of community alive, through a shared mission. Carol Edwards and the Y have many things in common, but the underlying message is a sense of community and responsibility to the Woodinville community.
