In 2006 the Ute Indian Tribe established a Parks and Outdoor Facilities Department within the F&WD. The Mission for the Parks and Outdoor Facilities Department is to Develop and Enhance the outdoor recreation sites and their facilities, reservation wide.
Bottle Hollow Recreation Area is in the process of enhancements which include picnic shelters with tables and swim platforms. Two new permanent vaulted restrooms were installed with more to be added.
Future goals for Bottle Hollow Reservoir include a walking/jogging park, family/group barbeque shelter and a new RV Park. The RV Park will be done in phase’s which will give time to train and educate tribal members for future job opportunities.
Other goals and projects will be carried out reservation wide to areas including, Big Springs, Midview Reservoir, Rock Creek and Twin Potts Reservoir, as well as other tribal recreation sites.
This department has ambitious goals that will be accomplished with positive input from tribal members, for the betterment of the Ute Indian Tribe.
