Parks and Open Lands

The city of Helena Department of Parks and Recreation oversees seven divisions including Parks and Open Lands, Recreation, Open Lands, Weed Control, Tree Maintenance, Aquatics, and Bill Roberts Golf Course. Hundreds of volunteers assist the department staff working in various capacities to provide quality facilities and programs to enrich the lives of others. These are designed and developed so that people of all ages, abilities, and income levels have the opportunity to participate in excellent recreational activities.

Overall, the Helena Parks and Recreation system includes more than 2140 acres of developed and undeveloped parkland, 30 parks including bike/pedestrian trails, a 50-meter outdoor swimming pool and waterpark, one spray park, a public golf course, three tennis sites, a skateboard park, four outdoor skating rinks, and more.
