Recreation Programming

Elgin PARD

Elgin Texas Parks & Recreation

In 2015 the Elgin Parks Department was re-created to better cater to the community's needs. The different divisions of the Parks Department add to the quality of life in our community by maintaining parks and green spaces. We plan and implement various programs for all ages and teach Elgin residents about the unique resources around them. From maintaining nearly 120 aces of parkland to providing more than 45 events for all demographics, our staff strives to bring Elgin together 365 days a year. 

The Parks Department is responsible for:
  • Parks maintenance 
  • Recreational Programming
  • Morris Memorial Pool
  • Facility rentals for:
    • Elgin Recreation Center 
    • Fleming Community Center
    • Morris Memorial Pool
    • All Elgin Parks

We are glad you chose to spend time in our park system and with our staff at our events. We are so proud of our facilities, events, programs and parks, and hope that our pride shows through in to your park experiences. Whether it's taking a walk in Elgin Memorial to check out our new trees, feeding the ducks at Morris, playing a round of Disc Golf at Thomas Memorial or listening to music at Veterans', we are happy to provide a variety of entertainment. We believe these recreational activities and spaces are essential to maintaining happy and healthy living in Elgin.
