DOVER MEMORIAL PARK / 5-MILE CREEK
Land Design, Inc. has an ongoing relationship with the Yellowstone River Parks Association (YRPA) on the planning and development of Dover Park located north east of Billings. Land Design, Inc.’s role in the project has varied as the project has evolved. Currently an active gravel pit operated by Knife River, Land Design, Inc. coordinated the gravel mining effort with Knife River and YRPA to facilitate locating overburden in areas that will be conducive to the eventual development of the land as a regional recreation site. The Master Plan, developed by Land Design, Inc. together with YRPA, will serve an important role as Dover Park will become one of the primary gateways into Billings once the new Billings By-Pass is complete. The plan identifies a wide range of recreational activities for all seasons including mountain biking trails, skating ponds, sledding hills, disc golf as well as wildlife habitat and fisheries. It will be one of the most attractive entry points into the Billings Community. Phase one construction of the 5-mile area located within Dover Park was recently completed with wide Community acceptance.
