History: 

The park land was purchased in November 1979 (with assistance from the City of Elmhurst) from the School District and developed in 1980. The park was dedicated on September 26, 1981 and named after Marjorie Davis, a dedicated teacher who taught at Roosevelt School for over 30 years. In 2009 the park was updated to meet ADA standards and the changing needs of its patrons.
