Greenough Park

Missoula Montana

Listing Type: City Park
City: Missoula Montana
Region: Glacier Country

This outstanding 42-acre city park runs along clean and beautiful Rattlesnake Creek for about 1 mile and is a diverse mix of cottonwood bottomlands and coniferous forest. A paved trail runs the length of the park and numerous unpaved paths go near the creek and toward more undisturbed places. A series of interpretive signs along the trails identify the most commonly seen birds; more than 100 bird species have been identified here. In the spring and summer it's an especially good area to see warblers, vireos, orioles, and black-headed grosbeaks. In the winter look for pygmy owls, pine grosbeaks, and belted kingfishers, and spotted sandpipers. Pileated woodpeckers are also frequently sighted, and White-tailed deer and an occasional black bear (early morning in the fall) can be seen.

Directions: Greenough Park can be found from Interstate 90 at Missoula, take the Van Buren Avenue exit and travel north on Van Buren Avenue. Turn left (west) on Locust and go 2 blocks, then right (north) on Monroe, and look for the sign indicating Greenough Park.
