Dakota West Arts Council (DWAC) and Bismarck Parks and Recreation District (BPRD) have partnered together to create, install and fill Poetry Boxes throughout Bismarck’s parks.The goal of the Poetry Boxes is to showcase local poetry- or the sharing of a favorite poem- for all to enjoy while strolling, walking or riding through a park. If you are interested in sharing your poetry, simply write or type an 8 ½ by 11” piece of paper, lifting the Poetry Box lid, and inserting the poem. If there is already a poem in the box, please remove it before inserting a new one. Find a poetry box in one of the BPRD parks:
