Any park facilities or court reservations, including Marantette Park or River's Edge Park, for large group events must be planned according to the most current CDC and Flathead County Health Department guidance in place and may require approval from the Health Department. The fishing pond, bike paths, tennis courts, basketball court, etc can be used with proper social distancing (6') and wearing masks when in contact with individuals not from your household. Please enjoy our facilities safely.
