About the Program...
The Missoula County Parks and Trails Program is one section within Community and Planning Services. Staff works with the Missoula County Parks and Trails Advisory Board to plan, develop, and manage the County's park system, consisting of 90 parks on over 645 acres. Parks and Trails staff collaborates with County Public Works to manage approximately 45 miles of shared-use paths and recreational trails and to plan for future trail connections.
Partnerships with local communities, neighborhood groups, service and non-profit organizations are a key component to the Parks and Trails Program. The County Parks and Trails Advisory Board assists these groups with funding through its Capital and Maintenance Matching Grants, and its Noxious Weed Grant Partnership Program with the Missoula County Weed District.
Types of parks found throughout the County include neighborhood, community, regional, and conservation parks. Facilities, offered within some of these parks include, but are not limited to: walking trails, ball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, picnic shelters, playgrounds, and wildlife viewing areas.
