Cottonwood Park was once a flat piece of river bottom along S. 12th Street in Bismarck. Now this 200 plus acre complex is full of activity and play options. You can walk or ride along the trail there, especially enjoying the new piece of trail that connects with Burleigh Avenue. There’s a lot to look at, including a bocce field, the adult softball complex (12 diamonds) and a youth baseball field, known as Haaland Field, complete with field lights, a batting cage, press box, ticket booth and scoreboard. You’re sure to see some big and little kids playing soccer at Reichert Field or racing along at the BMX motocross racing track, or runners training for the Bismarck Marathon. Pack a fishing pole to drop in a line at Cottonwood Lake, Bismarck’s urban fishing hole, or play on the playground.
