Located between S. Mildred and Morrison St., Jefferson Memorial Park is an 11.6-acre park, established in 1949 through a donation from the late Dr. and Mrs. G. P. Morrison. Until recently, it has been owned and operated by Jefferson Memorial Park Corporation, a non-profit, 501 c3 managed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
Through a multi-year, cooperative effort between CTPR and the Jefferson Memorial Park Board, CTPR purchased the park for $1.00 in July 2011 and now operates it for public use and enjoyment. The park features a hard-surface walking trail, three tennis courts, two basketball courts, two playground areas, four pavilions, a Veteran’s memorial, and an outdoor public swimming pool – the only such facility currently in Jefferson County. The pool and pavilions are available for rental for private parties. For information, please call City Hall at (304) 725-2311.
