Victory Township has a great recreational park right on Hamlin Lake where people can spend time relaxing, fishing, boating, or picnicking at. A pavilion is available for various social gatherings. A boat launch is also available.
Please stay tuned for additional details on a long term plan is being developed for the future of the park to add more parking, playgrounds, boat launch relocation/improvement, and more.
Victory Park is located off of Victory Park Road just off of Fountain Rd, take a took at our PLACES TO VISIT for more information.
Victory Township is currently enhancing Victory Park on Upper Hamlin Lake.
Upgrades to the park started approximately 2 years ago with a long range plan developed for the park.
Abandoned structures on park property were demolished. Three benches were installed on the waterfront. Three grills were installed near the pavilion. A new dock was built at the boat launch to better accommodate the launching of boats. A bike rack was installed near the pavilion. An information board was placed near the boat launch.
Currently a non motorized walking trail system is being constructed in the park by Triston Scribner as an Eagle Scout Project. There will be a sign at the trail head illustrating the trail. There will be a series of three trails throughout the park clearly marked with trail markers. There will be benches placed along the trail. Eventually this trail may include interpretive signs pointing out natural features of interest in the park.
A plan is being developed for the waterfront area of the park. This plan will include designated parking for vehicles with trailers segregated from the parking of single vehicles. This will improve the quality of the parking areas while eliminating sedimentation of Hamlin Lake. The traffic pattern will be improved to provide a safe environment for those enjoying the park. Once a suitable plan is developed an application for construction will be submitted. At this time the township will start the process of seeking grants to financially support this major park improvement.
If you haven’t visited Victory Park on Upper Hamlin Lake recently you will be pleasantly surprised by the improvements that have been completed and intrigued by the possibility s that exist for Victory Park. Your input and suggestions are welcomed.
