St. Joseph East Park

At 94 acres, East Park is classified as a Regional Park in St. Joseph’s Parks System Plan. The future Park’s gently rolling terrain has been farmed over the years and consists of open fields with scattered hedgerows and pocket wetlands. Bordering the south edge of the Park is the Sauk River. The entire site is within the 500 year flood plain and over 80% is within the 100 year flood plain. Most of the river’s edge is covered in wetland forest. In keeping with the Park’s inherent landscape character its development has been envisioned to support a mix of passive recreation facilities, ecological restorations and low-impact facilities providing opportunities for individuals, families and groups to enjoy the outdoors, get some exercise, and connect with the natural world.
