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.
