Fort Missoula Regional Park

  • Fort Missoula Regional Park 3401 South Avenue West Missoula, MT, 59804 United States (map)

Fort Missoula Regional Park is a new 156 acre destination park in the Missoula Valley.  The park improvements were funded by a $38 million county wide general obligation bond.  The park is within a historic district and interprets the Civilian Conservation Corp era.  Multiple features within the park are “state of the art” or “firsts in Montana”.  

Join us to learn lessons from behind the scenes and on topics from “building partnerships to sustainable design and construction” and “developing a business plan to telling a story that matters” and “opening a brand new facility and meeting or exceeding expectations to applying best practices in design for SITES and CPTED”.   Following an introduction to the project, delegates can visit multiple stations to learn first-hand from designers, maintainers, programmers and historians how to go from brainstorming to delivery and “if we had it to do over what we would do the same and what we would do differently and why."
