Heroes Park

2015 Empire Road, Dickinson, ND

Heroes Park made its debut in 2024, marking a significant milestone for Dickinson Parks and Recreation as it introduced two pioneering features: The first-ever toddler park and an artificial turf surface. This addition breathes new life into the former “Leisure Park,” enhancing its amenities with the inclusion of benches and a pavilion complete with two picnic tables alongside the toddler playground. Situated adjacent to soccer fields, the park was already one of the busiest playgrounds within the District, and with the onset of spring, its popularity has soared. This $135,000 project was made possible through generous contributions from the City of Dickinson, Dickinson Police Department, Dickinson Fire Department, and CHI St. Alexius. 

Heroes Park is located on the northwest side of the West River Community Center and across from the West River Ice Center. Features include a large three-story playground, toddler playground and soccer fields. This park also offers a 1.1-mile loop that goes around the West River Ice Center and the West River Community Center.
