Missoula Parks and Recreation, the Canyon Creek Village Homeowners Association, and the Grant Creek Neighborhood Council invite residents to view the new master park plan for Red Fern Park on Wednesday, January 22.
Parks and Recreation staff will unveil the new plan from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The Hub Family Entertainment Center, 5055 Expressway. The park design reflects the values and ideas shared by neighborhood residents at a park planning workshop last fall.
The January 22 workshop includes a brief staff presentation at 6:45 p.m., after which residents will have the opportunity to ask questions and comment on the new plan. For those who are unable to attend, Parks and Recreation will post the plan and a public comment form here on January 23. Red Fern Park is located at 4800 Chesapeake Dr. in the Canyon Creek Village neighborhood.
A master park plan represents the community’s vision for the park and sets a course for future development. A comprehensive plan also allows the City to seek funding for park development via public and private partnerships, state and federal grants, developer impact fees, and the City budget.
The City of Missoula is funding the park planning process and site inventory. For more information, contact Parks and Trails Design/Development Coordinator Nathan McLeod via email or by phone at 552-6261.
