Google pulling up wrong business

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how to get Google to pull up the correct business when someone does a search.

Currently if you search for Bismarck parks and rec or anything similiar to that, Google displays our campground facility, not the main Bismarck Parks and Recreation District.

 

If you search for our complete business name Bismarck Parks and Recreation District, you pull up the correct business display, but people don't normally search for our official/full name.

 

We would like to get this fixed, since our campground facility is fielding many calls a day asking about Parks and Recreation District programs and activities.

 

This is the incorrect information, with the abbreviated search term.

 https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B32A4Thhv8asWlUtcmpOS182TXc

 

This is the correct Google business when searching the official.

 https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B32A4Thhv8asbzk1X1V2Uk1yU28

 

 

Thank you,

Bismarck Parks and Recreation District

400 East Front Ave 

Bismarck, ND 58504

I believe the described effect is triggered by the fact both listings are using the same website and the "General sibley park" lsiting and their specified website send for the keywords "Bismarck parks and rec or anything similiar" enough signals - that way getting listed.
