Your visit to Latham Park will enchant you…believing that you have found the proverbial “Shangri-La.” The park is a privately owned beautiful, and peaceful retreat from the stress of your daily life.


Latham Park is located at 1915 S. Lemon Street, in a traditional residential area of the Morningside area of Sioux City, Iowa. Occupying almost a full acre of ground, it is home to an endless variety of flowering plants, warbling songbirds, a wonderful fountain, quiet sitting areas, and one or two friendly squirrels. We invite you to visit, take a stroll through the park, read a book, enjoy a picnic…feel your mind ease and your spirits soar.



Thanks to the Mayor’s Youth Commission and the local Carpenters Union, the Park now has a new feature just outside the main northwest corner entrance -- a Little Free Library.  We hope the neighborhood uses it frequently. 
Good job crew!

The return of the Pancake Breakfast was a big success.  Thanks to everyone who attended and donated so generously.  This was a great way to start off our 2021 fundraising campaign!

grounds-keeping equipment --
