  • Great place to go and listen to free music. Meet up with your friends. Meet with your family. Child friendly area
  • From the carousel, Dragon's Hollow, to Out to Lunch and Dinner, there is also something going on. There is a beautiful trail by the river to walk, jog, or ride your bike along. Then stop at Brennan's wave to watch the surfers and kayakers. It's a great place to be.
  • Caras Park is a nice environment to enjoying just walking or bicycling or spending time down by the river. You can watch the more adventuresome face the challenges that the river presents them as they paddle their kayaks across the small white caps produced by the large jaunty rocks that stick out above the waters surface. There is also an antique Carousel available for the children on up to the elderly to enjoy. Many events are also hosted at Charis Park including but not limited out to lunch at the park on Wednesdays, the symphony plays in the evenings at scheduled times, many collector car shows are held there as well. Most of these occasions also bring with them live music, dancing, food trucks, and fun can be had by all ages.
  • Solid medium sized carousel! Plenty of speed, rings but no ring toss.
  • Some of my fondest memories as a teen was going to caras in the evenings on the weekends. Sure we were rowdy but that's the time in our lives where we are supposed to be. Since the police were used to disrupt the location Missoula nightlife has taken a serious nose dive and now teens just go get wasted in the woods. Not an improvement in my opinion. Tragedy
