Henry Fine Park is a 27 acre community park located in the northwest quadrant of the City of East Lansing. It is one of the larger parks in the City’s system and is completely surrounded by the single family homes of the Pinecrest Neighborhood.

Henry Fine Park is horseshoe shaped and its features range from formal recreation facilities on the southeast, to wooded wetlands in the southwest, and open lawn areas with trees to the north. Shallow forested and nonforested wetlands shelter a small pond in the center of the park, and a drainage canal runs along the parks northern boundary.

The natural features of Henry Fine Park include an emergent marsh and an area of southern shrub-carr. Much of the southwest quarter of the park is dominated by a low land hardwood (Silver Maple) swamp with a small adjacent Red Oak mesic forest.
