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.

Please pardon

our ongoing construction projects.  They are signs of progress!

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!
