The lovely town of Eden, North Carolina, which had about 15,000 residents as of the most recent census, serves as the county seat of Rockingham. The city was established in 1967 by combining Leaksville, Spray, and Draper. The town of Eden thrives where the Dan and Smith rivers meet. The lively downtown and the breathtaking outdoors coexist in perfect harmony in Eden. Everyone may find their slice of heaven here, whether they eat, shop, paddle, or hike. For those that love the outdoors, there is no shortage of things to do in Eden. The 58-acre Freedom Park has a playground for kids, a multipurpose field, a sand volleyball court, a nature trail, a picnic pavilion with restrooms, and horseshoe courts. And there are many interesting flora and animals along the 1.5-mile-long, paved Sunflower Field walk.
