Lewis and Clark County has approximately 407 acres of developed and undeveloped parkland, along with many miles of shared-use paths and trails. Our mission is to provide and maintain a sustainable system of parks and trails that protects a diversity of habitats and open space, where people of all ages, abilities, and incomes can participate in the recreational activities available throughout the County.

Northstar Park Master Plan Project - Online Survey and Upcoming Open House

Mark your calendars and be part of the Northstar Park transformation!  Join us as we dive into crafting the ultimate Park Master Plan with an online survey and an open house. Your input is key to creating park spaces that reflect our community's needs and dreams. Let's brainstorm, share ideas, and shape the future of this Park together. Please begin by taking a few minutes to complete our online survey. Next, join us at the upcoming open house at the West Valley Fire Rescue building (1165 Forestvale Road near Helena, Montana) anytime between 4:30 - 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22nd for an informal gathering that will allow the community to freely explore materials, have conversations with the project team, and provide input on desired Park elements, site specific concerns and opportunities, and general feedback on the Park's development.
