This holiday season support Story Mill Community Park
"Story Mill Community Park is a game-changer for our community parks system--a Central Park, if you will--where Bozeman residents and visitors can gather, play, and enjoy nature."
- Mitch Overton, Parks and Recreation Director, City of Bozeman
Bozeman residents prize our deep-seated sense of community and easy access to the outdoors. Despite living in one of the nation’s fastest growing small cities, we take pride in our small-town values. We like to know our neighbors. And we wouldn't feel like Montanans without rivers at the doorstep, a horizon full of mountains, and a giant dome of sky. As Bozeman grows, we must find ways to stay connected to nature and one another. Story Mill Community Park is our chance to leave a legacy that embodies Bozeman’s community spirit and celebrates our beautiful, shared outdoor spaces.
At 60 acres, Story Mill Community Park will be the City of Bozeman’s largest park featuring ample experiences for exercise on 3-4 miles of new trials, a climbing boulder and an adventure playground with treehouses, slides and unique climbing features. For our furry friends, an enclosed dog park will provide space to roam and play fetch.
Family, friends and neighbors will gather for performances in the park’s outdoor amphitheater, recreation programs and camps at the community center, picnics and celebrations in several open-air pavilions, and festivals held on the park’s grand lawn.
The park’s award-winning nature sanctuary includes almost a mile of restored river frontage along the East Gallatin for fishing and 15 acres of wetlands to observe birds and other wildlife at home in the park. There will be so much to do and to see in Story Mill Community Park – whether you come to spend an hour or an entire day!
Give a gift that celebrates our community’s past and future, support Story Mill Community Park this year.
Now The Trust for Public Land is working to raise private support and make the park a reality. Story Mill Community Park will forever change our community for the better, even as it helps to preserve our way of life.
Announced at groundbreaking for the park in June 2017, we have received a wonderful challenge from an anonymous foundation. Gifts made online will be matched one-for-one until we reach $50,000!
PROGRESS: $52,254 raised by December 31, 2017. WE DID IT!
Please make a gift today and help us create a world-class park for Bozeman.
