A new recreation center is being planned at Morse Community Park to serve the East Franklin area of Elk Grove. The planning process has begun with a feasibility study to ensure the facility will include the right amenities and uses for cost-effective operations and long-term sustainability.
Community input is vital to the success of this project. We want to know your ideas and feedback on the Morse Park Recreation Center and there will be a variety of ways for you to get involved!
Join the CSD team at the large shade structure in Morse Park (5540 Bellaterra Drive Opens a New Window. ) on Sunday, July 28, from 7 to 8 pm. This event is open to everyone, and children are welcome with parent/guardian in attendance. To say “thank you” for participating, free cold treats will be given out to the first 200 meeting attendees (up to 4 per household).
Details are being finalized for more community meetings on July 29 and 30. Provide your name and email below to be contacted with full details.
We will post an online survey on this page in August. Everyone in the community is encouraged to take the survey!
On this page, we will share project milestones, what we’ve learned from the community, and next steps in this exciting project. Please help us by sharing this page (and the survey!) with your neighbors, friends and family.

The 2018 CSD Parks and Recreation Master Plan identifies a multipurpose recreation center at Morse Community Park. The East Franklin area is built out and now is the time for development planning to begin. The center should be similar in scale to the Wackford Community Center, but with a distinct identity and potentially more gymnasium space. The center should be designed to integrate with Morse Community Park and surrounding development. Construction funding is available from Park Impact Fees, Landscape & Lighting Assessments, and Quimby Fees. Operational costs will be evaluated and confirmed in a business and operations plan as part of the feasibility study. Typical timing for a project of this size requires three to five years for planning, design, and construction.
