Berrien County Park News

County Parks 5-year Plan update in progress. The Berrien County Parks and Recreation Plan establishes an implementation program for the provision of parks and recreation, natural areas, scenic areas, conservation areas and historic sites to meet the existing and future needs of the citizens of Berrien County.  The current plan expires in 2014.


The Parks Commission is now formulating plans for the 2015-2019 County Parks 5-year plan. The public is encouraged to attend Parks and Recreation Commission meetings to discuss ideas for the future of all county parks.  If the public is not able to attend Parks Commission meetings but would like to provide input on the 2015-2019 Parks Commission 5-year plan, they are encouraged to send written comments to the Berrien County Parks Commission, 701 Main Street, St. Joseph MI 49085.  A public hearing on the proposed plan will be held at a later date.
