Lake Helen lakes – future vision

Lake Helen lake is an integral part of the City of Lake Helen Downtown Masterplan, a design concept by the East Central Florida Regional Planning Council obtained through a grant with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity.

The creation of a mixed‐use master plan for the City’s Downtown objective is to promote the downtown commercial properties, City’s equestrian center, Blake Park and adjacent properties for residents to gather and provide a pedestrian friendly sense of place – to include Lake Helen lake on the North end.

The objective is to enhance the public access to Lake Helen lake, creating an expansive shoreline for fishing and recreation, boat access, floating dock, new pavilion, boardwalk and observation area as well as a proposed trail extension from Lake Helen lake to the Equestrian Center.
