Playful City USA

Missoula has been named a Playful City USA since 2009

Missoula's recognition by KaBOOM! as a Playful City confirms our city's commitment to active lifestyles and healthy kids. Playful City USA is a recognition program honoring cities and towns that ensure that kids in their communities, particularly kids from low-income families, get the balanced and active play they need to thrive.

Community Support

Parks and Recreation Director Donna Gaukler thanks citizens for their support: "We Missoulians prioritize healthy living each day by engaging in active fun, be it at Splash Montana, A Carousel for Missoula, a concert in a park, our wonderful museums and other attractions, or even enjoying a hike on open space. We believe wellness is holistic, and play is the avenue to a healthier community and economy, as well as healthier and happier children. Thank you, Missoula, for being playfully healthful."
