EDGEWATER: A Legacy Neighborhood

Edgewater is a beautiful, historic neighborhood along the Rock River on Rockford’s northwest side. The varied and well-kept housing, both single-family homes as well as multi-family dwellings, have helped ensure this neighborhood’s diversity and resilience for decades. Edgewater is also known for its tree-lined streets as well as its access to the multi-use path and other riverside amenities; indeed, people can be found walking and biking, with dogs and strollers, all year round.


Renters and homeowners alike are welcome to become members of the Edgewater Neighborhood Association; voluntary Membership supports events and activities that bring neighbors together for fun and celebration. We invite you to learn more about Edgewater and come visit us soon!

Sadly, on April 12, 2020, Edgewater's Neighborhood Association President and 12th Ward Alderman John Beck passed away unexpectedly at the age of 57. While the City of Rockford and Neighborhood Association determine a path forward, please direct questions and needs that you would normally have directed to John to one of the people listed on our Contact Us page. Thank you for your understanding.
