Due to the increased river levels, the following areas are closed until further notice:
Fox Island Boat Ramp parking lot, Keelboat Boat Ramp and south end of parking lot, the Expressway underpass, and the west Sertoma Park Trail from the Expressway underpass to the north end of the park at Riverwood Drive.
A portion of the Pebble Creek Trail from 19th Street to Century Avenue has been detoured onto the Pebble Creek Golf Course cart path for the winter.
This detour will be in place until spring when winter conditions subside.
BPRD Geocache Challenge
Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD) has partnered with the North Dakota Geocaching Association (NDGA) to establish 12 geocaching sites in BPRD’s system of parks and trails.
What is geocaching?
It’s a free outdoor recreational activity. Participants search and find hidden objects by using Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates that are posted that are posted on geocaching.com.
The passport, below, will help you keep track of all the caches that you find. You can print the passport or get a passport inside a geocache. The passports and the caches are in BPRD parks to stay. Cache searchers can take their time and enjoy the hunt, the find and BPRD’s parks. Find all of them (in a week, in two months, six months, whenever) in Bismarck’s park and trail system.
Bring the completed passport to the BPRD Administrative office at 400 E. Front Ave. (open M-F, 7:30am-5pm) to receive a prize.
