Special Events


The fee to register a special event, such as a wedding, in a non-reservable facility is $60 to $100. We register these events to limit overbooking of a facility. The public has full access to the area during your event. All deposits and permits are applicable. This includes Greenough Park Footbridge, Memorial Rose Garden, Bess Reed Park, and other park areas which do not include a reservable picnic shelter.

Sports Facilities Reservations

Reserve tennis courts, soccer, and softball fields. View information about sports facilities reservations.

Reservation Fees

The reservation fee must be paid at time of booking; the facility is not reserved until reservation fee is paid in full. We accept Mastercard, Visa, cash, and your personal checks. Any changes in picnic shelter dates or locations will include a $10 administration fee. Refundable deposits are returned if picnic site is picked up, no damage is done to area, and your garbage is hauled away.

Please bring a copy of your facility permit to your picnic as proof of your reservation.


No refunds are given for inclement weather or smoke. No refunds are given if notification of cancellation occurs 60 working days prior to your event. A credit may be requested.

Refundable checks and credit card transactions are available. Check and credit card refundable deposit can be retrieved by calling Missoula Parks and Recreation two business days after your event at 406-552-6256. Refundable deposit checks that haven't been retrieved by November 1 will be destroyed.
