John H. Dover Memorial Park - Billings

John H. Dover Memorial Park is the culmination of the vision and philanthropy of Jim and Virginia Sindelar who donated 142 acres of their creek-bottom and pasture land to YRPA for development into a public park. The Sindelar family ranched the property for three generations after it was homesteaded by their patriarch, John H. Dover, in 1884. It includes more than 3 miles of primitive trails for walkers, runners and mountain bikers, and affords spectacular views of the Yellowstone River and Five Mile Creek bottoms. A short hike to the River provides superb fishing. A vault toilet and picnic facilities are available at the trail-head, which is beyond the lower gate, marked 3W. There is no admission fee, but donations to YRPA are appreciated. YRPA is still all-volunteer.
