MORRIS MEMORIAL PARK is located at 802 North Avenue C, this 14-acre park is provides a place for students and residents to have facilities for recreation. Located on the site of the former Morris Hospital. In 1990, the City of Elgin received funds for a reimbursement grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife to develop a park complete with swimming pool, fish pond, basketball court, playground, hike and bike trail. A grant from the Meadows foundation was instrumental in the success of this project. Complete with picnic tables and benches, this park is a great place to bring the family and picnic. The Morris Memorial Park opened in May 1995 and is one of the most popular parks year round. In addition to swimming for everyone, the Elgin Independent School District uses the pool for their swim team during the season. Summertime is very busy at the pool with swimming lessons, advanced swim lessons, water aerobics, lap swimming, day care swim days and pool parties. Many ducks inhabit this beautiful park and make it a great place to picnic and bring the family.
