Meet the Project Partners

North-Missoula Community Development Corporation is a neighborhood based 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is providing staff and fundraising support.

Missoula County Public Schools owns the park land and has committed $100,000 to the project.

The City of Missoula holds a long term lease for the park, provides ongoing maintenance, and has pledged $350,000 in support of the project. Of that $100,000 in Impact Fees is allocated toward the Playgrounds, and the remaining $250,000 of Capital Improvement Project funds will support overall park improvements.
