Work on Fort Missoula Regional Park wraps up
Fort Missoula Regional Park is set to open in just nine days, after work on phase two is finished.
The park is a joint city-county project funded by a $38 million dollar Parks and Trails bond.
Phase one of the park opened in April 2017.
Phase two consists of seven softball diamonds, tennis courts, 22 pickleball courts, two playgrounds and more.
Parks and Trails program manager Lisa Moisey says it will benefit Missoula in several ways.
“It's a remodel of a park that some folks will remember that was built in the 1970s and hadn’t received any significant remodels since then. So this is a fantastic opportunity to bring our facilities up to a modern standard, expand our services and provide new offerings for the community,” Moisey said.
Officials are hosting a free grand opening celebration on July 26 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
