Outdoor Spaces

US flag stretched the entire length of the Washington Grizzly Stadium

Dornblaser Field and South Campus Stadium

Dornblaser field is located on South and Higgins Ave with an open space for athletic events, celebrations, and recreation. It is close to the UM Golf Course and the former home turf of the Montana Grizzlies football team. The South Campus Stadium is also the UM playing field for women's intercollegiate soccer.

Golf Course

South of campus with views of the gently rising South Hills, the Golf Course is full of old growth trees and a perfectly kept lawn. The Iron Griz Restaurant, at the north end, provides sustainably sourced food and exclusively local beer and wine selections. An outdoor patio plus tenting area is available for rent.

Phyllis Washington Park Amphitheater

The Phyllis Washington Park Amphitheater sits at the base of Mount Sentinel next to the Prescott House. With close proximity to a parking lot, access to power and the M-Trail bathrooms, this outdoor area is an ideal casual setting for music and theatrical performances as well as outdoor receptions.

Riverbowl East & West

Set literally on the river and the Kim Williams Trail, these two practice fields are well kept and lush, a raw space for whatever special event you'd like to bring.

Storytelling Area

A circular seating area around a fire pit and an encompassing view of Mount Sentinel make this a peaceful setting for outdoor gatherings. The Storytelling area is right outside the Payne Center, beside tee-pee rings marking an historic Salish encampment.

UM Oval

At the center of UM, The Oval is what it sounds like – a giant, circular lawn with 360 degree views of UM's historical buildings, including Main Hall. Set back from busy streets and enclosed by campus icons and old growth trees. To reserve The Oval, please complete the Oval Request Form.

Washington-Grizzly Stadium

An impressive outdoor football stadium right up against Mount Sentinel. Walk through the Hall of Champions and find yourself down on the green, staring up at the steep walls of tiered seating. Great practice space for off-season athletic groups or unique venue for special events.
