Good place to stop for a photo opp. This is a giant turtle riding a snowmobile statue. Probably something you won't see anywhere but in Bottineau :-) .

This is an iconic fixture in the city park on the SE side of the downtown area. It's a fun place to take your young ones for a one-of-a-kind photo op. Kids can climb onto the seat of the snowmobile
