This facility opened in 2018 and is an outstanding accomplishment for a community of 10,000 as, on average, small communities are unable to fund and support large-scale infrastructure such as Recreation Centers. Amenities include a full-sized basketball court with 6 basketball hoops, optional volleyball net, multipurpose room, weight room and an industrial kitchen. The Elgin Recreation Center is not only a great place to come and play basketball or take a fitness class, but it is also an Emergency Shelter and event rental facility.
Fleming Community Center
The renovated Fleming Hospital (1938) is located at 802 N. Ave. C, adjacent to Morris Memorial Park & Pool. This facility includes a classroom, studio, grand hall, lounge, meeting room and catering kitchen. In 2021 this facility is utilized for City office space for the Community Services Director, Main Street Coordinator, Code Enforcement team and Mayor, pending the building of a new City Hall Facility. The Fleming Center is available to rent for a fee for private uses such as parties or meetings, for contract use such as exercise classes, and community programming by the City of Elgin.
Morris Memorial Pool
Morris Memorial Pool was created in 1994 with a grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife fund as the second of two public pools in Bastrop county. Morris Pool hosts Water Aerobics, Swim Lessons for adults and children, Lap Swim and Private Party Rentals.
