Join us for the opening of this much-anticipated installation!

Following brief remarks from City of Bozeman Mayor Terry Cunningham; Dr. Shane Doyle, Apsáalooke (Crow); and GVLT Associate Director EJ Porth, we’ll officially cut the ribbon and invite you to explore the installation designed to connect people to place.

Step inside to discover: 

  • How to identify the surrounding peaks and mountain ranges using the metal backrests on the stone benches
  • How Native American tribes use the medicine wheel for health, healing, and ceremonial purposes
  • The names of the eight treaty lands in Montana and where they are located
  • A unique place to stop for a moment of quiet reflection or gather with friends

The opening of this installation marks the completion of several Burke Park improvements included in the successful campaign to add 12 acres to the southern end of Peets Hill made possible by our valued partnership with the City of Bozeman and the community’s overwhelming support. Other improvements included building two new overlooks, extending the Chris Boyd Memorial Trail down to Church Avenue, and upgrading the walking loop at the top of Peets Hill to an all-abilities trail.

How to get there:  
It’s Summer Trails Challenge time—so why not double your fun and run, bike, walk, or roll to the top of Peets Hill for this event? Not only will you get to enjoy time on the trail and help avoid parking constraints, but you can also log your miles to help get us closer to our goal of 90,000 miles!
