Park Reservation and Fees

Helena's Parks and Recreation Department is committed to providing local residents with a range of parks and recreation opportunities to improve health and quality of life.  People of all ages and abilities can access a variety of physical and non-physical programs and activities at the city's numerous parks and recreation facilities. 

On February 27, 2012, the city commission passed a resolution changing park use fees.  The new fee structure, which is explained in the Policies & Fees Frequently Asked Questions brochure, is based on benefit type, event location, use of tents, and event length.

To find out more about the fee structure, look at our fees list.
