The Keelboat was cool, but I would've liked more information about the Keelboat and Lewis and Clark using one. There was one sign, but left me wanting more. Also, very cool Eagle statue by the boat. That's about it. Takes 5-10 minutes, but it's on...More

small park with a nice three piece structure at the entrance but the keelboat you see is in bad shape, if you're going on the Lewis and Clark river ride this us where you would get that boat.

Boat replica was nice to see but not much. River was clean and had a bot launch area, but it did not appear that you could go swimming in the area. Area was free and had restrooms (no water, they do smell).

This city park is next to the parking lot for the riverboat tours. There are a few benches but that's about it other than the keelboat itself. OK for for a quick stop to let the kids run around. Also there is a boat launch...More

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

We spent a fun 1.5 hours driving along River Road to the five locations to find these unique eagle sculptures, which is a public art creation by the students of the United Tribes Technical College. Starting with the one near Shelter 9 in Sertoma Park...More

The boat itself is kind of cool; I like how they painted the concrete under it blue to represent water. Other than that, it's just a park where local people might go biking or running. The four-headed thunderbird statue is interesting, I guess, but not...More

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
