Parks & Recreation

The City of Elkhart Parks and Recreation Department provides park facilities and programs to accommodate the needs and interests of local residents and visitors.  Whether you are into sports, nature or just want to take your children to the playground, the City of Elkhart is the place for you.

Come out and enjoy our beautiful park!  We are excited that the first phase of Elkhart City Park is completed with the installation of new playground equipment! The new playground includes swings, slides and a merry-go-round.  

If anyone is interested in sponsoring a bench, trash receptacles or any other items for the park, call Elkhart City Hall at 903-764-5657, or email Mayor Jennifer McCoy at
