The Big Sky Community Organization originally was founded in 1998 as a volunteer lead not-for-profit trails organization that was managed by the Big Sky Owners Association. With success in building community trails, BSCO was the obvious organization to take on the development and management of parks and open spaces in Big Sky. With big dreams of cultivating community through recreational opportunities in acquiring, preserving and promoting places and programs for all, BSCO quickly evolved into the organization you see today.
Today, the Big Sky Community is the home of four different parks totaling 93- acres, each one with unique features that draw locals and visitors from far away places to enjoy their amenities. The BSCO manages these four parks: Big Sky Community Park, Kircher Discovery Park, Ousel Falls Park and the Beehive Basin Trailhead Park.
The BSCO has an active Parks Committee that meets once per month to discuss park projects and events, while also coordinating volunteer efforts in the park. The committee provides BSCO staff and Board of Directors guidance for the development of the parks in Big Sky.
