Here are some links in English for Edogawa-ku:

This web site also has a section on facilities.
A small map shows this city in relationship to the rest of Tokyo here:
There are lots of facilities for kids. I take my daughter ice skating at Edogawa Sportsland. To get there we use the Shinjuku subway line to Shinozaki station and then catch a bus. That is the last station in Tokyo before the train crosses the Edogawa River into Chiba Prefecture. On the way travelling south along the river towards the Sporstland there is a Ponyland with free pony rides. There are other trains that go into Edogawa-ku, I just don't know them well.

Edogawa is a large ward with a strange shape, traveling to different parts of usually mean getting on a bus. We usually take a bus to go from Ichinoe to Sobu Recreation park, a large park stretching from Arakawa river to Edogawa river. The same bus also takes us to Tokyo Bay and Kasai rinkai park, which has an aquarium and is next to a beach. The park is not too far from the Disney Resort complex either.
