Pine Point Regional Park Master Plan

Background

Washington County is leading a master plan process for Pine Point Regional Park. Located in Stillwater Township, this 287-acre park is a trailhead for the Gateway State Trail and a local destination for skiing, hiking, biking, and equestrian riding. Mature pine forests, wetlands, and prairie offer visitors a range of ecological systems to experience in one park visit and are an important resource to the region’s ecology.

The purpose of the master plan is to create a vision for a regional park that meets the needs of Washington County’s future park users. 

Guiding Principles

  • Improve and expand the trail system strategically
  • Strengthen equitable usage of the park
  • Explore opportunities to connect to the park’s history and cultural value
  • Provide access to diverse recreational opportunities
  • Enhance the ecological functioning of the park
  • Promote environmental awareness
  • Connect Gateway State Trail users with the greater park
