Great place to hang out and have a picnic.. Fun to see the Kayackers, surfers, skateboarders and general population wandering about this great park. It seems to be used for events nearly constantly during the summer. So one can always go and see what there is to do. Enjoy Missooola!

We love to walk in this area. Have had trouble with bikers speeding through the area when little kids are playing in the park. I was taught to walk my bike in crowded areas but this does not appear to be the norm anymore.

The best time to be had in Caras Park is any downtown event (or wedding if you rent the venue). My daughter was married there, the ceremony on the stage and the reception under the tent. It was beautiful!

This wonderful park offers so many events all year long...from Lunch in the Park, Made in Montana craft shows, political events, several craft Brewery gatherings and many many more events, The Carousel and Dragon Holloway’s amazing places for children. It truly is a park for all. Plus Brendon’s wave

There is always something going on at Caras Park. Concerts, festivals, markets! Come and see the surfers on the "wave" in the river. Visit the Carousel. This is a place to really get a flavor for Missoula.
