Silver Park Brownfields Cleanup

Silver Park is part of the Saw Mill Brownfields cleanup project that was completed in the spring of 2014.  The park is located to the west of Ogren Field and along the Clark Fork River with walking/biking trails, picnic tables, a boat landing, and a reservable picnic shelter and pavilion (see City of Missoula for more information).  View a video of the park area at the point it was almost complete.

The park is part of the former industrial site west of the Orange Street bridge that was a lumber mill in operation for 100 years.  In 2002, private developers partnered with the City of Missoula to clean up the vestiges of industrial use.  The cleanup was financed by the EPA Brownfield Loan Program and was more than a decade in the works.
