Peach Creek is the fictional town in a non-specific area of the world in which the show Ed, Edd n Eddy is set.
The Location of Peach Creek
The question of Peach Creek's location in the real world has intentionally been left unanswered. There are many fan theories about the location of Peach Creek, but there isn't a canonical answer.
According to Ed, Edd n Eddy's creator Danny Antonucci, the location of Peach Creek, similar to the location of Rolf's homeland, is not meant to be anywhere specific. Instead, it is just a place that is meant to feel familiar to fans and remind them of their own childhood. The location of Peach Creek is purposely kept open for fan interpretation.
Around Peach Creek
Peach Creek is a suburban town consisting of newly-built houses sitting on the edge of some larger town or city that can be seen looming away on the horizon. Peach Creek still maintains its suburban roots, with all types of greenery including the woods and the Creek. Yet Peach Creek still has some traces of urban development, such as the junkyard, the construction site and the trailer park. It also has a downtown area with many highways leading in and out.
Peach Creek and the Cul-de-Sac
The Creek flows beyond the Trailer Park, even branching off to a separate swimming hole. The playground is located next to the cul-de-sac, separated by the tall fences of the lane. The Junkyard is placed behind the cul-de-sac.

- Edd, Rolf, Jimmy and the Kanker Sisters are the only characters shown to not be originally from Peach Creek.
- Peach Creek was once Eddy's ancestors Land, but it was lost in a gambling match with Lord Kanker. Furthermore, it caused a rivalry between The Eds and The Kankers.
- Peach Creek was called "Edtropolis" in the game Cartoon Network Speedway. It may not be the Cul-de-Sac, or a specific area in Peach Creek, but it is in the style of the early backgrounds for Ed, Edd n Eddy.
- Peach Creek was first mentioned in the episode "Sir Ed-a-Lot," by Eddy.
- Another town outside Peach Creek is Lemon Brook, a rival and competing town. The names are similar, as both towns are named after fruits and streams of water.
- It was revealed in "A Town Called Ed" that Eddy's ancestors were the first to colonize the town (originally called Fort Peach Creek) and judging by the clothes they wore, they settled sometime around the 17th Century.
- Since it was during the 17th century, and from the illustrations in the history book, it's more than likely that Eddy's ancestors were puritans or pilgrims. If they were indeed, this would suggest that Peach Creek is located in the New England area of the northeast United States, where it was once dominated by puritans in colonial North America.
- Peach Creek appears as two separate entities in Cartoon Network Universe: FusionFall: Peach Creek Commons (the cul-de-sac, the trailer park, and the playground) and Peach Creek Estates (an expanded version of the construction site with some allusions to Codename: Kids Next Door).
- The electrical cables start at the factory and continue behind Edd's house, but it's not shown where they continue from there.
- It is unknown in the series if there are zoos, rescue services (like fire departments, police stations, hospitals and more), beaches, or more things in real life. However, based on sirens heard during The Destruction of Rethink Avenue, it is most likely that police, fire, and rescue other services do exist. To further support this, an ambulance is actually seen transporting Jimmy to the hospital in "One of Those Eds." Additionally, a building labeled P.C.F.D. was seen near the school in Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show, standing for "Peach Creek Fire Department." It is not uncommon for characters to threaten to call the cops, supporting the existence of police.
- Most of the stores are named after AKA Cartoon's staff.
- There is a Peach Creek track in ModNation Racers called "Peach Creek Derby" by GSWWTC that is nearly an exact replica of the actual cul-de-sac in the show.
- Evidence suggests that Peach Creek is located near Vancouver, Canada, the city where A.K.A. Cartoon is located. Even though the location of the town is never specified, and it is unknown if it actually is in Canada, it very well may be in a place in the United States that's near the Canadian border.
