Berrien County Parks
Silver Beach, although located on Lake Street in the City of St. Joseph, this popular bathing beach is operated by Berrien County Parks and Recreation. Click here for information about County-owned parks and beaches.
Park Facility Rental
City residents can receive their annual passes by bringing their ID and license plate numbers (if you have more than 2 vehicles registered to your city address please bring all vehicle registrations at one time so that we can record all of your vehicles) to City Hall. You can register your vehicles yearly starting in February. Records are not kept from year to year.
These passes are good for Tiscornia Beach, Lions Park Beach, 2nd Street Lot, Elm Street Lot (at the Whirlpool Compass Fountain) and Kiwanis Park. At which time Riverview Park becomes a pay to park facility, this pass will include that as well.
Non-residents may purchase either hourly, daily or season passes from the parking meter located at the parks by entering their license plate number and paying by credit card or cash (the machines do not give change).
