Travelers should know that this park closes the end of September and from what a local told me opens again for a bit around Christmas time. I wish it were open during the entire year as we are off season travelers. My nephew was really disappointed as we looked longingly through the fence. You'll love it if you can go... More

Could not believe this was free. Hadn't been since I was a kid. Brought back lots of fun memories. Can't wait to see it during Christmas!

This is a beautiful park and playground, a truly one of a kind attraction with so much to offer. Always a must see on the west side of Rapid City, SD.

This is a great place for kids and adults alike. It has a long history here in Rapid City and there is no charge to get in except at Christmas time when the whole place it beautifully decorated.

I have only gone once for a birthday party for a child my son knows through daycare. But omg, the stories they represent in there! I want to go again when it re-opens in the spring and explore some more!

A lot of familiar fairy tales relived in fiberglass statues. Well kept area, clean, and family friendly. Kids enjoyed it and so did I.

In this enchanting children's park, there are activities as well as traditional swings/slides. Every structure has a storybook theme. There are lovely gardens and walkways between the activity areas. My children of long ago never wanted to leave. Now my grandchildren don't either.

This expansive free property is great entertainment for younger kids. If you have teenagers they will probably like something different, but the price and quality can’t be beat. Not overly commercialized which is nice as well. Quality family entertainment.
