St. Helena


Lyman Park – Right in the center of town on Main St. is a small shady park with lots of picnic tables, the perfect spot for a lunch outdoors. Charming gazebo and toddler playground.

  Silverado Museum – This tiny "jewel box" museum has memorabilia of Robert Louis Stevenson, author of Treasure Island. Kids can check out a lovely chalk pastel drawing of the author as a 4 year old, the lead soldiers that Robert Louis Stevenson played with when he was a sickly child in Scotland, or a model of the bunkhouse on Mount St. Helena where he stayed with his bride in 1880. Get a glimpse of Stevenson himself, who wrote such best-loved novels of derring-do.
    Go for a bike ride – Rent bikes at St. Helena Cyclery. They have kids bikes (24 inch) and helmets, plus bike trailers for kids. Bike out Spring St. to White Sulfur Springs – the road is pretty level and quiet, and it winds along the creek, through the oak trees.

Crane Park (Crane Ave.) – Charming park with shade trees, picnic tables, large playground with climbing structures and swings, restrooms, and site of the Farmers Market (May - October).


St. Helena High School Community Pool (Grayson Ave.) – The swimming pool at St. Helena High School is open for public swimming from mid-June - mid August, Mon. - Sat. 1:00pm - 4:00pm.
