The History of Thomas Park
Thomas Memorial Park is a 12-acre park located two blocks off McDade Road at 411 Madison Street. The park, built in the 1970’s, consists of a baseball field, playground, restrooms, pavilion, picnic tables and concession area. A youth softball field used for additional little league play is also located in the park.
A grant from the Lower Colorado River Authority and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department has enabled the park to be improved with the following renovations: a nine-hole disc golf course, an additional picnic shelter, new volleyball court, new playground equipment, expanded trails system, two additional practice fields, an expanded parking lot, renovated bathrooms/concession area, additional picnic and bar-b-q areas and much more.
In 2019 with the growing public interest in outdoor recreation, the Elgin Parks & Recreation Department added new Tee Boxes numbers to our existing Disc Golf Course.
Additional property has been acquired to expand the park at a later date.
