Protecting Recreational Access in Perpetuity

The Edwards Soccer Fields were protected by the Lowell Parks & Conservation Trust in partnership with the Trust for Public Land in the early 1990s.

This 11-acre complex is located on the east bank of the Merrimack River off Edwards Street.  When you drive over the Rourke Bridge, these are the fields that you see.

The Lowell Youth Soccer Association gave LP&CT its 2010 award “In appreciation for your efforts in acquiring the lands for Edwards Field.”

In 2008, the fields were officially dedicated to Edward J. Walsh, as the Edward J. Walsh Soccer Complex.
