Story Mill
Community Park

 

 

In 2019, Bozeman celebrated the opening of Story Mill Community Park. At 60 acres, it is the City of Bozeman’s largest park featuring ample experiences for exercise on 3-4 miles of trails, a climbing boulder and an adventure playground with treehouses. For our furry friends, an enclosed dog park provides space to roam and play fetch. Family, friends and neighbors gather for performances in the park’s hillside 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 40-acre award-winning nature sanctuary includes almost a mile of restored river frontage along the East Gallatin River for fishing and 15 acres of wetlands to observe birds and other wildlife at home in the park. There is so much to do and to see at Story Mill Community Park – whether you come to spend an hour or an entire day!

However, as the city's population is rapidly growing, we are facing new challenges.

1 in 7 people live below the federal poverty level, leading to struggles with food insecurity and affordable housing. At Story Mill, we are building partnerships with local non-profits like the Food Bank to create gardens with access to fresh food and the Human Resources Development Council to build new equitable housing on the donated 8 acres of land adjacent to the park.

Story Mill Community Fund

The purpose of the fund is to raise dedicated funding that would support two key partnership opportunities at Story Mill Community Park:  

  1. a partnership fund to offer support to neighborhood and other local groups seeking to provide programming, engagement events or small improvements in the park; and  
  2. the addition of improvements or new amenities identified in the park’s Master Plan, such as the splashpad.
