A lot can be accomplished when a community bands together.
Last year, the Minot Community banded together to win $100,000 dollars for Oak Park in the America's Favorite Park competition.
Kelli Volk has the details on how Magic City residents are at it again--this time for Roosevelt Park.
Lap tops are usually left at home when one ventures out to the zoo.
However, that wasn't the case this afternoon at Roosevelt Park Zoo.
Minot residents brought laptops, tablets, and smart phones to the Zoo to take part in a voting blitz for a chance to call Minot's Roosevelt Park America's Favorite Park
(Lynsi Schneider, Zookeeper)"Roosevelt Park and Roosevelt Park Zoo are a little bit lower so we're trying to boost our votes so we can get Coca-Cola to sponsor us and give us money to help us get back.
If Roosevelt Park breaks into the top three parks, it has the chance to win thousands, but it is up to the voters to make that happen.
Voters say their motivation behind continuous voting is to add to the list of memories they have already made at Roosevelt Park.
(Nikki Paulsen, Minot Resident)"We need our zoo back. I took all my kids to this zoo and now they're all grown up and they can go to the zoo on their own, but I've got grand kids I'd like to take and there's no zoo to take them to."
(Aaron Johnson, Minot Resident)"I've been going to the zoo since I was a little kid and I wish to have it come back up again."
(Nel Summers, Minot Resident)"My kids grew up here, we partied in the park, birthday parties, swam in the pool, went to the zoo. These are my roots."
A similar situation was a play last year when Oak Park was inching it's way to the number one spot.
Voters were able to secure a $100,000 recreation grant for Oak Park that went toward flood recovery.
Minot residents are showing that same dedication this year so they can get back to the Roosevelt Park they remember.
(Lynsi Schneider, Zookeeper)"They're very determined, caring, they show a lot of ownership in our community and they're always there to support one another and the function going on there."
