  • Caras Park was a great location for the Brewfest with lots of space for the vendors and tasters! If you've not attended the brewfest yet, make your reservations early. It's normally near the end of Se...  more »

  • 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.
  • So much fun for families Lots of different venues...music, farmers market, festivals. Parking can be a problem. I had a question about parking. Is it free? On weekends and after 5pm it is free, otherwise you must pay. There are reserved spaces also
  • It is an ideally located park along the Clark Fork river. Caras Park serves as a venue for everything from outdoor concerts, food markets, beer festivals and community events to even staging political rallies (Bernie Sanders spoke there during the 2016 campaign). Even when events are not occuring, plenty of parking allows you to get out and walk along the river-side trail, visit the Carousel and Dragon's Hallow and quick access to the best of Missoula downtown.
  • I think it's okay but my kids love it! .... just kidding we all love it it's a great place for families and you can even ride the carousel without breaking the bank :-)
  • Love this place. Great place to take anyone on a nice walk. Don't forget to stop by Tamarack Brewery for a cold one
