History: In June 1979, a parcel of land was purchased by the City of Jacksonville for $40,000 to complete the land for Fletcher Morgan Park. This additional land was purchased from Lewis H. and Betty B. Marks. From the early 80`s to the early 90`s the park department used this facility for many types of outdoor activities. However Fletcher Morgan Park has become one of the busiest ball fields in the city. In April 1995, with the help of Councilman Eric Smith, the park department entered into an agreement with the School Board to provide ballfields along with the management provided by the San Souci Athletic Association to have baseball and softball facilities for youth and adults. Starting in 1995, many renovations have been made to the Fletcher Morgan Park facility, such as the restroom facilities, the parking areas, the lighting, and the fields themselves.
