Missoula Parks and Recreation will reopen West Broadway Island Park on Wednesday, July 21, at 9 a.m. The island was temporarily closed for clean-up and environmental restoration.
During the two-month temporary closure, Parks crews removed illegal campsites, deep-cleaned the area and restored native vegetation. In addition, crews removed invasive/non-native trees and vegetation to improve sightlines, enhance safety and encourage lawful behavior.
The park will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and is a designated alcohol-and-drug-free zone. Park entrances are gated, and the City has contracted with a local security company to check the area nightly. Overnight camping is prohibited, and individuals trespassing outside of open hours are subject to immediate citation and removal. Residents may call 911 to report prohibited behaviors in the park, including camping or alcohol or illegal drug use. View the Park Rules
