Are you looking for something fun to do with the whole family? I recently found out about a new park in Bozeman from a friend and decided to check it out. GRAN CIELO PARK is the name of it and if your GPS in your vehicle isn't up to date like ours then it might be your children spotting it before you do :) 

It is not like any other park in Bozeman and if you plan on going to it you might want to grab a few things.

First off if you have a biker in the family then pack your bike there is an incredible asphalt pump track that was perfect for bikers just starting out. Or even a perfect spot to race those remote control cars. 

Bags...yeah that is what we call them in Minnesota some call them cornhole? Whatever you call them bring them there…
