Community Gardens

Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD) is proud to support community gardens. Not only are they a source of healthy foods, community gardens also bring people together and offer a place for everyone to learn about growing fruits and vegetables, experience the outdoors and de-stress.

BPRD and Burleigh County provide the land use and the water for the community gardens. Interested individuals and families put in their garden, keep it weed free and enjoy the harvest. There is a fee to rent a plot.

2024 Season

In 2024, BPRD anticipates opening the gardens the fourth week of May, weather permitting. The gardens close for the season on Oct. 12.

Gardeners are responsible for clearing their plot(s) of all plant materials, markers, decorations, fencing, and stakes. All material remaining after the cleanup date in October may be discarded.

Bismarck Community Gardens

BPRD partners with Bismarck Community Gardens for those gardens on park district property. Bismarck Community Gardens supports the efforts of Hunger Free Garden and encourages participation by donation of excess produce and fruit to local community food pantries or food programs.
