The MDF continues to raise and invest donations into these Downtown Missoula projects:

  • Installation of the Heritage Missoula Legacy Trail Kiosks & Medallions
  • Information kiosks, the next phase of the Wayfinding System
  • Caras Park Pavilion Canopy Replacement and Restroom Upgrades
  • The North Riverside Parks and Trails Plan implementation (see presentation below – Click the Heart)

  • Placemaking initiatives such as holiday décor, flowers, boulevard banners, and more

With new Downtown development totaling nearly $850 million, these projects are more important than ever. And so is our mission: to support and promote Missoula through enhancement of Downtown, now and for future generations.
