South Meadows Park, 101 Nina Lane, was created and built using the City of Bismarck’s Neighborhood Parks and Open Space Policy. This policy provides for park and green spaces within new developments. South Meadows is the first park to be created using this policy. The developers for this park are Chad and Stacy Wachter.

South Meadows Park includes a playground, a loop trail, an open play space, basketball courts and parking lot. This park is located on S. Washington St, just south of Burleigh Ave. in south Bismarck.

Kiwanis Park, 318 S. Washington St., will officially open a renovated Jack Vantine playground in the park. The playground, designed for 5-12-year olds, features a new structure with slides, climbing area, shade canopies, play panels, ramps and an accessible merry-go-round.

The playground was made possible through funding from the Kiwanis Club, a matching grant from Bismarck Parks and Recreation District, a grant from the Garrison Conservancy District and a donation from Basin Electric Power Cooperative.
