The numbers alone can’t tell the whole story.
Figures from the Edmond Economic Development Authority show Edmond’s population was estimated at 83,587 in 2009.
Edmond has more than 200 restaurants, 30 parks and outdoor venues, 128 pieces of public art, 40 shopping centers and a cost of living that is 11 percent below the national average.
The average price of an existing single family home is $224,410, while the average price of a new home is $284,276.
Our school’s graduation rate is almost 95 percent, and in 2009, Edmond had the highest Academic Performance Index of all Oklahoma 6A school districts.
The numbers are impressive but they can only reflect the people who live in Edmond. They work hard, and they play hard. They take advantage of the city’s parks and recreation programs. Sports played in Edmond range from golf, tennis, baseball and softball to lacrosse and soccer. Rugby is growing, too.
Edmond’s churches bring families together to worship, while hardworking volunteers make it possible to enjoy annual events such as LibertyFest, A Taste of Edmond, Downtown Edmond Arts Festival, Dickens Weekend, Storybook Forest, Trick or Treat on the Street and the Mayor’s Tree Lighting.
Numbers can indicate Edmond is a growing city but it’s the people who make Edmond a great friendly place for families. There is something for everyone.
