This small park along the river has a replica of a keel boat, a sculpture and a representation of a river boat. You can stand on the river boat to see the river or go down to a small beach just below the river boat.

Cool if you want to see what kind of a boat Lewis and Clark travelled on, otherwise nothing special. Worth a quick stop, but don't go out of your way

Park has nice views of the river and the bridge. The boat is small and has little interpretation, but is interesting to visit to get a glimpse of the Lewis and Clark expedition.

This is a long linear park on the bank of the Missouri River. While it won't be the highlight of any trip it is a worthwhile place to visit in Bismarck. The walk is enjoyable and the huge sculptures are a really interesting talking point...More

Model of a keelboat used by Lewis and Clark - interesting. Doesn't take long to see it; right on the Missouri River. Worth a quick stop.

This isn't so much a park as it is a parking lot with two items of interest. One is a wooden replica of a boat that you can walk around on and the other is a large statue of different native american statues with descriptions....More
