Park & Recreation
Seymour Memorial Park
The City Park was established in 1921. The 26.5 acre park is located on what was known as McClain Grove because of its wonderful growth of Live Oaks. Fair Park Stadium and the bathhouses along the rock walls that border the perimeter of the park were built by the WPA. In 2013 the city was fortunate enough to have a benefactor for new playground equipment. There is also a 1 mile walk track that circles through the park and up the hill by our hospital. You can cross the one of the Seymour Creek bridges and follow it around the Portwood Pavilion and add another 1/4 mile to your walk. Many citizens use this track.
If you are interested in reserving the park or the Portwood Pavilion please contact the City.
The Portwood Pavilion is located at 800 E Morris St, in the Seymour City Park. It offers a large covered patio area, dining/meeting space, kitchen, & bathrooms. Newly renovated, the Portwood Pavilion is an excellent space for reunions, birthday parties, and other celebrations. Please contact City Hall at 940.889.3148 to make your reservation.
