Our Vision and Mission

The vision for the Fairgrounds and Parks Department is to create and maintain world-class fairgrounds, parks and trails for all, through the cooperative efforts of our community. 

Our mission is to provide quality agricultural, socio-economic and recreational opportunities to Park County residents and visitors by facilitating access, understanding and enjoyment of the natural and built assets and amenities of Park County, Montana.


Services include a year-round event center with seating capacity of 680, a dining room and catering kitchen; ample parking space, an outdoor arena with a covered grandstand and bleachers that can accommodate more than 5,000 spectators; event-related camping with 40 established camp sites complete with water and electric hook-ups, a centralized sanitary dump station, and a men’s and women’s shower house.  Additional services include year-round horse stalling, bus garaging and seasonal storage.  



Park County is home to three county parks. 

Arch Park is located just north of the world famous Roosevelt Arch, offers a stone shelter pavilion, picnic tables, a stage, barbeque area, water fountain and trees interspersed among the 1.5-acre parcel.  

Confluence Park  is located near the confluence of the Gardner and Yellowstone Rivers, is conveniently tucked away in Gardiner, Montana.  

Silver Gate Park is centrally located in the small community of Silver Gate, just outside of Yellowstone National Park. Amenities include picnic tables, benches, playground equipment, vault toilets and bear proof trash receptacles.
