New Missoula City Park (Missoulian)

The new city park near Southgate Mall in Missoula will likely be open in the next year, thanks to an alternate construction bid strategy.

Monday night, the city council approved securing a construction contract by February before plans are finished, with construction planned to start in early summer and finish by September.

Ellen Buchanan, director of the Missoula Redevelopment Agency, said this leads to a more collaborative final design process between the city and the contractor, as well as being cheaper.

“Being able to price things in the winter months is very advantageous,” Buchanan said.

The method has been used by the MRA before, Buchanan said, during bidding for the Park Place garage and Mary Avenue construction.

The bidding procedure passed with one no vote from Ward 4 representative Jesse Ramos, who wanted to see a more traditional construction bid.

The MRA helped finance the $2 million purchase of the entire 12-acre triangular lot bordered by Johnson Street and North Avenue, to the west of Russell Street on the edge of the Franklin to the Fort neighborhood.

The park went through a couple of rounds of community review and planning in Fall 2017, which resulted in a concept plan with an off-leash dog park, pavilion and large open fields.

A Fresh Perspective On Montana’s Most Vibrant City

A native Missoulian and University of Montana graduate; Megan understands Missoula’s unique mosaic of neighborhoods and businesses and presents a fresh perspective. A people person at the core, her dedication and pride in the Missoula community is reflected in her ability to understand client’s needs.

“Missoula, being the biggest city in NW Montana has a vibrancy that is hard to match.  Any day of the week you can find something to do in town (if you aren’t busy playing outside!).  Live music, lectures at UM, new restaurants and coffee shops.  We are also almost equidistant to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks and three rivers flow in to our valley.  The recreation is endless!” – Megan Twohig

With Megan’s intimate experience we had to know: what is one thing everyone should do when visiting Missoula?

“Hmmm….one thing to do in Missoula?  Too hard…how about a perfect winter day?  Start the day at one of the awesome coffee shops downtown for your favorite latte and a pastry.  Grab your cross country skis and head to the Rattlesnake Wilderness Area for a day outside.  Head back to town and have a cocktail at Montgomery Distillery and then head across the street for dinner and live music at the Top Hat!”


It’s easy to see Megan has a love and appreciation for Missoula, but what made her decide to become a Real Estate Agent?

“I have memories going back to childhood of being really enamored with property… land, homes, buildings etc. In college I started actively following the market and being pretty obsessed. Eventually, I realized I could turn my passion into a career, and here I am!”

Being a Native Montanan Megan grew up around horses and learned many skills about how to properly care for them and give them the perfect setting to thrive in.

“I started riding in grade school, got my first horse at 15 and have continued to have them since that time.  I competed through high school and then with the Equestrian Team all through college at UM.  I absolutely love when I get to work with client’s buying and selling horse properties!  There are so many important details when it comes to keeping our horses happy and healthy.”

With so much experience and knowledge of the Missoula area we wanted to know what the most memorable experience Megan has had as an Agent so far?

“Most of my memorable experiences in real estate have to do with wildlife!  I was once meeting a client to look at property west of Missoula about 60 miles.  He had ridden his motorcycle to meet me and look at property.  We were headed out to a home on a dirt road when a baby bear ran across the road!  Part of the excitement of living in Montana is you never know what exciting experience you’ll have just by stepping out your front door.”

Megan knows where to find the perfect neighborhood for your new home and can’t wait to help you enjoy the real estate experience. Please contact her today if you are buying or selling in NW Montana.
