Woodland Park is a two-acre city park in Edgewood, located in the 500 block of Woodland Drive. Griffin Creek runs along the park's southern edge.

The land was set aside for park use by Homewood in the 1940s, but not developed as a park until 1994. Ann Damsgard, at the time a fifth-grade teacher at Edgewood Elementary School, spearheaded the development of the park.
