ATTENTION: City of Elgin parks’ restrooms are closed until further notice.
Elgin Memorial park is located at 1127 North Main Street (Highway 95 North and Main Street/Loop 109). The park is approximately 26 acres with hundreds of elm trees and green grass, a small concession stand, restrooms, two sand volleyball courts, three tennis courts, horse shoe pits, one playground, covered and uncovered picnic tables, barbecue grills, and scattered park benches. There is also a large covered pavilion that is popular for parties and events and a covered picnic area for smaller gatherings. The playscape was made possible by a grant from the Lower Colorado River Authority. It is the site for the Annual Western Days Festival, Firemen’s Bar-B-Q Cook-Off, Market Days, and many other programs and activities.
The City of Elgin worked with the VFW Post 6115 to rededicate a flagpole marker honoring Elgin Veterans. The marker was originally placed in 1971 with a flagpole for the Elgin Baseball field, which is now the site of the Elgin Recreation Center. The Elgin Recreation Center was funded in part by a grant from FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Administration, to provide an emergency shelter in Elgin.
