A sundail. Welcome to Sioux park, where you can do almost anything with the dinosaur looking over your shoulder.
Hi everybody. I'm Tristan Emond mindful living Realty a realtor right here in rapid city, South Dakota. Welcome to my YouTube channel. I'll talk everything about moving to rapid city and the wonderful things of rapid city and the black Hills, and this was about town adventure. We're showcasing one of my favorite parks; Sioux park.
Sioux park is located on the west side of rapid city, just south canyon link drive and east of Sheridan lake road.
One of the main features of Sioux park is the full-sized track and football fields. Here the local schools play some of their football games, soccer games, track, and field meets. And this past year final marching band performances.
Plus it's a favorite spot for walkers, joggers and runners.
Located in the Mural walls are four Racquetball courts.
Plus there's multiple tennis courts and a number of soccer fields.
Just on the edge of the park is the Jimmy Hilton pool with waterslides lots of fun stuff, places for the kids. With plenty of parking,
there are plenty of basketball courts for your pickup game. With your friends, horse shoes, anyone just gotta bring your own horse shoes.
And playground equipment for kids of all ages.
Even those big kids.
Yeah, right. I can do this. No problem go. Nope.
Nope. Throughout the park, you'll see a bunch of these green slackline poles. This park was created in memory of Nehemiah Larimer a senior at Stevens high school who passed away on March 28th, 2015. Nehemiah was passionate about slacklining highlining and rock climbing, and he loved to introduce others to these sports.
This park honors his legacy to pursue new challenges and adventures and to celebrate a life of love and balance. There are picnic shelters
and beautiful green spaces for your picnic lunches,
Look up at the clouds, moving by.
listen to the breeze in the cottonwoods
and smile at the songs of the birds. If you're lucky, you might even see the albino squirrels.
Yes, of course, a sundail because why not?
I see a burn behind me that was built after the 1972 flood, when the rapid Creek flooded all the way through the town, creating a lot of these parks, a lot of these green spaces. And so this was part of the work that was done to make sure that doesn't happen. And again,
Another interesting feature nearby. Sioux park is the tree Arboretum, which is just over these stairs. Over the hill. We can check out different species of trees and walk on a little park. One of my all time, favorite things about Sue park is the bike path right next to rapid Creek. The lake path follows rapidCreek, about 10 miles all the way across the city.
From west side to east side, this concrete paths is perfect to run Jog. Bike unicycle or whatever suits your fancy. There are even some bike repair stations along the way.
I love the beautiful views and listening of the sound of the water rushing by at rapid Creek.
