City Council Meetings
1st and 3rd Monday
of every month
at 7:00 P.M.
Mondays that fall on a holiday, will commence meeting on the following Wednesday.
Polson is located on the Flathead Indian Reservation in a natural
amphitheater at the south end of Flathead Lake. This charming lakeside community
is the trading center for one of Montana’s most fertile farming areas. In a
prime cherry growing region and home to numerous cherry orchards, Polson
celebrates with an annual Cherry Festival.
The broad, sweeping Mission Valley south of Polson is bordered by the rugged,
snow-capped Mission Mountains. The Flathead River that flows from Polson
features whitewater rafting and Kerr Dam. The National Bison Range at Moiese
with its large herds of bison, elk, deer, antelope and barn sheep is nearby, as
well as the Ninepipes and Pablo Wildlife Refuges for bird watchers.
Two museums, The Miracle of America and Polson-Flathead Historical Museum, offer
many displays and memorabilia. Polson also has several city parks located on the
lake. Visitors are advised to keep their cameras ready for the area’s own
“Flathead Monster,” sitings of which date back over a hundred years. Also, don’t
miss the Polson Golf Course.
