Walking is the best way to get around bottineau, most places don't even have a parking lot, so just find a place to park and go on foot from there. (Don't worry about getting to tired, everything is fairly close)
There is a wonderful park: The Forestry Park. When you go past it, it looks a lot like a gravel driveway, but it is the greatest place in town for a picnic. It has an orchard and a soccer field, and bunch of little paths, and it's right by a huge grainfield which is gorgeous at sunset. I don't know the exact adress, but it is nestled with a bunch of houses on one of the long neighborhood roads at the back of town. Please don't miss this one! ask for directions if you still can't find it, but remember some people might not know because it's hidden.
