Parks and Recreation


Imagine a day of getting back to nature….bring your bike or go for a walk along the historic I&M Canal adjacent to downtown Morris. As you make your way along the “tow path” you will be surrounded by the shade of mature trees and the sounds of nature as you enjoy the view of the canal. The peaceful trail is a great way to relax and unwind.


Pack your picnic basket and head out for a good old fashioned day in the sun at one of our beautiful parks. Within the City of Morris there are several parks where visitors and residents can relax and unwind, including three state parks. Each park offers something different.  From the peace and tranquility of Gebhard Woods to the boat and jet ski launches at William G. Stratton Park or the colorful playground equipment at Chapin Park there is something for everyone
