The City of Morrison is proud of its parks and recreational areas and strives to continuously improve and offer new recreational activities to its residents and visitors.  Morrison’s newest park is the 35 acre Morrison Sports Complex, located on the east edge of town along Route 30 and the intersection of Bishop Road.  The park features four fast-pitch softball/little league diamonds, one baseball diamond, and a junior tackle and football field.  A sledding area, nature trail, and a walking path connecting with North Jackson Street are also planned.  Please contact Jim DuBois, Director of the Sports Complex, at (815) 772-6139 or visit quickscores with any questions, schedules or interest.
