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:
Morris Memorial Pool
Facility rentals for:
Elgin Recreation Center
Fleming Community Center
Morris Memorial Pool
All Elgin Parks
Veteran's Park circa 1900

FALL/WINTER PROGRAM GUIDE 2019-20
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.
The Elgin Parks Advisory Board is working on updating the Parks Master Plan for the next 10 years. This is something vital for our department because it will define how our parks and open spaces are enhanced, changed or even added to.
Any major change to the parks, including purchasing new land, replacing old play equipment, getting new features like a dog park or amphitheater, are all determined by what people say in the surveys we receive so this is a great chance for everyone to have their voices heard and counted.
