The Roundup -

Heritage Park To Host Summer Activities Throughout July & August


McKenzie County Heritage Park Director Sandy Reiker has fun teaching kids about local history at the park.

This summer The McKenzie County Heritage Park will be offering many fun activities for kids to participate in throughout July and August. The Heritage Park has a variety of buildings that hold historical importance to McKenzie County's such as a trapper's cabin, country school, blacksmith shop, homestead shack, law office, church, barbershop, and much more! The Heritage Park is located west of Watford City at 950 2nd Avenue SW.

Activities offered at the Heritage Park include a Dino Dig, Archeology Dig, Bookmobile, and Tater Tot's program.

On July 24 at 10:30 a.m. there will be a Tater Tot's program at the Heritage Park, and on July 31 at 10 a.m., there will be a Dino Dig. Aug. 7 and 21 at 10:30 a.m., there will be another Tater Tot's program. On Aug. 12 at 10 a.m. there will be an Archeology Dig, and on August 16 at 10:30 a.m. there will be a Dino Dig and the bookmobile at the Heritage Park.

The McKenzie County Heritage Park is currently up and running with a few minor changes. The main office/museum building is currently under construction. Visitors will be able to access the Heritage Park through the gates on the west side of the building material. The Train Depot (the big white with green trim building currently serving as our main office building) serves the purpose of the main business office due to the fact that the original office is under construction. When visitors arrive, they can check into the Train Depot, and Heritage Park staff will go over their COVID-19 protocol.

The Heritage Park asks that you refrain from touching our artifacts, not only because the oil from your hands breaks down the artifact but also because they are not able to spray disinfectant as this will cause further damage to the artifacts.
