Wyss Associates, Inc. worked with the Rapid City Parks and Recreation Department to Master Plan a 27 Acre park in North Rapid City in 2007. In 2008-09 Phase I of the Master Plan was designed and is currently under construction. A community built, destination playground is being realized through coordination with Leathers and Associates and an active citizens committee.

Other features of the park are:

  • Three open grass fields
  • Natural areas
  • Extensive natural surface walking paths
  • Custom walls and tables
  • Pedestrian bridge
  • Sledding hill
  • Restroom building
  • Shelter and parking lots designed to clean and slow stormwater

Future phases will include an overlook, a skate park and a more fully developed dog park in the South Eastern corner of the site. The project was completed in the Summer of 2009.
