Forest Service Park is located one block west of Main Street on the south edge of downtown Ketchum. It is a quiet location with stunning views and Engelmann spruce trees that were planted in 1934 by the Civilian Conservation Corps when the site was a U.S. Forest Service compound. The property was acquired by the city of Ketchum through a citizen-driven effort. The park is frequented by locals on their lunch breaks and dog walks. Visitors and locals alike enjoy its historic feel. The buildings on the north side of the park are now home to the ­­­­­Sun Valley Museum of History operated through a lease from the city by The Community Library. The buildings to the south are private residences; please respect their privacy. On Tuesday evenings during the summer, this park is the venue for Ketch’em Alive, a popular concert series with live music, dancing, and a rotation of beverage and food vendors.

Forest Service Park may be reserved year-round and the public restroom remains open through winter, but be aware that Parks Division employees remove snow only from the paver pathways through the park. For public events a special event application will be required.
