In 2023, the Billings City Council set city-wide priorities including to “increase parks, trails, recreation, and cultural investments.” These priorities included a set of strategies to determine long-term capital investment in:

  • a multi-generational recreation center
  • additional park and trail development

In alignment with these priorities, the City Council recommended a public vote on a Parks, Trails, and Recreation bond set for November 7th, 2023.
