6 Acres of Park.
Our goal is to be continually improving St. Martin Heritage Park, Charlestown in order to become an attraction for not only the local community but for friends across our nation.
More than one hundred trees, many benches, playground equipment, lighting and a picnic shelter have been added in memory or in honor of special people in the lives’ of our donors. Also you’ll find our Labyrinth of Gratitude carved from the southwest corner of the Park. Field stones picked from area farms create a path of serenity within its 70 foot diameter.
A generous grant received from the Chilton Area Community Foundation enabled the purchase of picnic tables and trash receptacles.
The Park’s natural beauty will be sustained by memberships, rentals, grants, and other forms of giving. And by the mighty muscle of our volunteers.
On the green hillside of the Park, a charming gazebo was erected in the summer of 2008. Build in memory of a strong supporter of the Park, it was one of our first major additions. Its grown to be a lovely centerpiece surrounded by blooms and greenery. It bids welcome to a quiet moment of contemplation, a picnic of laughter, or maybe even – vows of love for an eternity.
Social Hall & Picnic Shelter.
As you enter the Park, you are greeted by the social hall to your left. Built in 1959, the gives 3200 square feet of opportunity for the family fun or serious business. You’ll fit more than two cooks in it’s roomy and efficient kitchen.
