Survey now open to gather public input on a Williams County Park System Master Plan

Posted on July 19, 2021

Update (7/19): The survey will remain open until 5 pm CT on Friday, July 23rd.

Williston, N.D., (July 1, 2021) โ€“ The Williams County Park Board and Parks Department, in collaboration with design and consulting firm WSB, have opened a survey to gather public input for a Williams County Park System Master Plan.

Williams County Parks are comprised of the campsites/parks at Blacktail Dam, Epping/Springbrook Dam, Kota Ray Dam, Little Egypt, Lookout Park, and McGregor Dam.

The Park System Master Plan will guide future investments based on a list of strategic goals, policies and priorities for improvements, development, redevelopment, and acquisitions in alignment with available resources. The Park System Master Plan will provide the necessary framework for the Williams County Park Board to implement strategic improvements that will be of greatest benefit to the community and will identify future funding necessary to improve the system in terms of infrastructure, staffing, operations and maintenance.

Public engagement is key for developing a long-range vision for how Williams County Parks should meet the recreational needs of the community. To learn more and complete the survey, visit

A representative from WSB will also be at the following community events to gather feedback from the public:

  • July 2: Williams County Parks Summer Concert Series at Blacktail Dam
  • July 3: Tioga Freedom Fest
  • July 9: Williston Downtowners Crazy Days
  • July 9: Rescue and Reclaimed at the Upper Missouri Valley Fairgrounds
  • July 10: Williston Downtowners Main St. Market
  • July 11: Buffalo Trails Days in Epping

WSB was selected earlier this year from among three proposals to lead the effort in developing a Master Plan for parks managed by the Williams County Park Board.
