My kids loved the water to play in and it was fun to sit or lay in the grass and let them play. Plenty of places to eat a meal or a snack surrounding this awesome park. Visited in early August 2016

This is an exceptional cityscape with concrete artistic pillars and a concert area with seating and rest rooms. Rapid City got this one right. Nice venue for a multitude of activities, including ice skating in the winter months.
