Chief Lookings Village
Friends and relatives in town for a summer visit? Show them the best view in Bismarck by going to Chief Lookings’ Village, located just off of Burnt Boat Drive in north Bismarck. This area features an interpretive trail, telling visitors about North Dakota’s first citizens. This natural grass, scenic area has a beautiful overlook of the Missouri River and the surrounding area. Some say it’s even been a spot for many a marriage proposal. You’ll want to sit for a while at one of the benches or at Sonali’s Garden, a newly installed memory garden, to enjoy it all. Drive or bike to this historic area.
You could call Pioneer Park a sibling to Chief Lookings Village. Located just “below” Chief Lookings Village, Pioneer Park is a beautiful place for you to park and then start your walk, or run, or bike, or skate along the beautiful trails next to the Missouri River. Want MORE of a challenge? Head to the mountain bike trails nearby. When you get back, rest at the eagle sculpture or in the picnic shelter. The sand volleyball courts here are well used during the summer. Play on the playground or go explore the nearby wooded areas. Lots of green going on in this park.
