Story Mill Community Park

The Trust for Public Land is working to protect and transform 60 acres adjoining the historic Story Mill in Bozeman, Montana, into a unique city park with exciting opportunities for active recreation, outdoor community gathering spaces, a nature sanctuary, new trails and trail connections, and natural and cultural interpretive programs.

In February 2014, the Bozeman City Commission unanimously approved the Story Mill Community Park proposal, with overwhelming community support. The park will be built with the ideas and passion of hundreds of community members, funding from the voter-approved 2012 Bozeman Parks & Trails bond measure, and the support of many generous donors.

The Trust for Public Land recently completed a two year restoration of the site's wetlands and wildlife habitat, including a full half mile along the East Gallatin River, and now designs are being finalized for an accessible adventure playground, river front access to the East Gallatin, a 40-acre nature sanctuary, teaching farm, community center, trails, natural amphitheater, gathering spaces and much more.
