Planning for the Future of Facilities
Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD) is conducting a Facilities Master Plan to assess the condition and uses of BPRD facilities, with a focus on the BSC Aquatic & Wellness Center, the Capital Racquet & Fitness Center, the VFW Sports Center and the Wachter Aquatic Complex. The Facilities Master Plan will look at all existing BPRD facilities to determine potential gaps in recreation facilities in Bismarck to assist with future facilities planning and improvements.
This document contains the feedback received from meetings with community stakeholders, facility users and a public input session that was held on January 9. BPRD invites you to review the comments and discussion received thus far. Please know an online community survey will be available in the next few weeks. Your participation in that survey about the future of facilities in Bismarck would be welcome. Watch the BPRD website or Facebook page for the survey announcement.
