Custer Park is a park located on the western edge of downtown Bismarck, on the northwest corner of Broadway Avenue & Washington Street. Custer Park was Bismarck’s first municipal park when it was developed in 1909.

The park’s notable Eagle Statue was dedicated on October 1, 1988 to commemorate the bicentennial of the United States Constitution.

An evergreen tree within the park contains a plaque dedicated to Mark Kellogg, a Bismarck Tribune reporter killed at Little Big Horn. The plaque was provided in June 1954 by the Daughters of the American Revolution.

The Elks Aquatic Center is located directly across from the park, which was the city’s first swimming pool when completed in 1932 using funds donated by the local Elks Lodge.
