Skyline Park

Skyline Park opened to the public on June 27, 2015, encompassing a total of 60 acres. It is home to Butte’s first dog park, with three fenced areas dedicated to the community’s canine friends. It also boasts a handicap accessible playground and a fishing pond stocked with west slope cutthroat trout. Beyond the obvious, there is also a landing zone for hang gliders coming from upon the East Ridge.

There are also extensive trails open to pedestrians and bikers with informational signs posted throughout concerning park features and environmental restoration work that has been completed in the area.

The park was named for the Skyline Sportsmen’s Association, which was chartered in Butte in 1958. The organization encourages conservation of wildlife and their habitat, protects rights to public lands, and provides educational programs to all ages.
