The Helena Township Parks and Recreations Committee members are to voluntarily serve in an advisory capacity providing recommendations to the Helena Township Board regarding the development and on-going management of a comprehensive five-year parks and recreations plan to ensure that the township parks, public access sites, seasonal recreational facilities, and recreational activities and events are optimized and appropriately supported for all to enjoy.
In partnership with our citizens, visitors and other community stakeholders, Helena Township will be a leader in promoting community health and well being through fun, progressive, and memorable parks and recreation experiences and activities for all ages, abilities, and interests. This will take place throughout a well-maintained and connected park and trail system, through comprehensive recreational programming, and within state of the art facilities. The Township will continually respond to, and proactively meet, the changing needs of those who utilize the parks and recreation opportunities. The Township will strive to enhance and protect our open spaces to enrich the quality of life for present and future generations in a safe and secure environment.
Helena Township has many fine features. Coy Mountain walking trail, Depot Park, Tennis Court Park, Ballpark, Safe Harbor, plus 17 public access sites. Helena Township benefits from many groups, including the Alden Volunteers, Helena Township Historical Society, Alden District Library, Friends of the Library, Downtown Alden Business Association, Juniper Garden Club, and Torch Area Artisans Guild.
