It sits on beautiful Lake Saint Helen and has a large beach area for people to use. There is also large areas of green space for people just to enjoy in the Spring, Summer, and Fall. There is plenty of parking. In 2016 the township also installed a large Marina for even more access to the lake for Residents and Visitors alike. This park is open dawn to dusk and is closed in the winter.

saint helen community garden park
Started in 2017 the Saint Helen Community Garden Park is the latest park added to our township's wonderful parks system, located along North Saint Helen road at the North end of downtown Saint Helen. This park is certainly a work in progress for the community and we are hoping to get this park really up and running in 2018 with food plots and fruit trees. The Gardens lands were donated by a local resident in 2017 for future park uses and is owned by the township. When the weather permits that park is open all Spring, Summer, and Fall from dawn till dusk 7 days a week. We would encourage those who would like to volunteer at this park, gather information, or want to know the rules, to please review documents below.
Community Garden Hours are Spring, Summer, and Fall hours dusk till dawn 7 days a week.
