This scenic downtown park on the banks of the Clark Fork River is the home of the popular Missoula carousel and a great place for a family outing, with a large jungle gym, walking and bike paths, frequent special events and concerts.

Found the park a great place for small children and if you love the water bring your buggy board since the water offers some great practice runs. The biking path offers some great trails as well!

Great park for a hot rod show. Right next to the Saturday Market area, lots of shops all within walking distance.

Caras Park is a beautiful stretch along the Clark Fork River. Nice playground and carousel in the area. You can also throw on a wetsuit for some river surfing! Who even knew this was a thing???
