Posted Date: 10/29/2018
The City of Longview invites community members and user groups to provide input on the future
use and layout of the sport and park amenities at Roy Morse Park. The Parks and Recreation
Department and the design team will be hosting two days of pop-up studios and open house

Roy Morse Park is a 60-acre park in Longview and is currently home to two baseball fields, four
softball fields, and two practice soccer fields as well as other recreation activities. The City is
beginning a park master planning process that will help define a long-term vision and guide future
improvements. You are invited to take part in the design of this park and are welcome to drop in
anytime! The desired outcome of the meeting is to compile the community’s goals and wishes for
the park and work to address the needs of the users and the facility now and into the future.
During the pop-up studios, the team will be seeking input, creating concepts, and displaying a
preferred park concept while considering existing site conditions and constraints, constructability
requirements, site accessibility, flexibility of use and events, and maintenance requirements. The
open houses are the opportunity for everyone - residents, visitors, and stakeholders - to review and
discuss each concept with City staff and the design team and offer any other new ideas. An online
survey will be available for participants to help determine park priorities and overall goals for the

master plan.

The pop-up studios and open houses will be held at the Elks Memorial Building, 2121 Kessler
Boulevard, on November 13 & 14, 2018. The pop-up studios will take place from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30
p.m. and the open houses take place at 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. both days.
