6 Amazing Playgrounds In South Dakota That Will Make You Feel Like A Kid Again
It’s fall in the Mount Rushmore State, which means temperatures are still somewhat decent, and there is still time to get outside and enjoy the great outdoors! Are you a parent with a child who gets cabin fever at record speeds? Before it gets too cold out, you will want to get them out of the house by visiting these six amazing playgrounds in South Dakota that will make you feel like a kid again:
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. Sertoma Park (Sioux Falls)
If you are in Sioux Falls, there is no better park to be at than Sertoma! From the state-of-the-art playgrounds (yes; playgrounds is indeed plural!) to the walking paths and nearby Butterfly House and Marine Cove, there is no better place to play than Sertoma Park!
2. Memorial Park (Rapid City)
Everyone knows Rapid City for its world-famous landmarks and attractions, but did you know that it is also home to a killer park system? The next time you are out and about with the kids, make sure to visit Memorial Park, which is home to not only great places to play but the must-see Berlin Wall Exhibit.
3. Barstow Park (Vermillion)
Warning: If you take your family to Barstow Park, it may ruin them of all other parks, as Barstow is a nearly 20-acre outdoor wonderland chock-full of playgrounds, fields and courts, ice rink, and more. Please be advised.
4. Pioneer Park (Brookings)
With its wonderful playgrounds for nearly every age group and open space galore, it is no wonder Pioneer Park is such a popular place for Brookings festivals and special events! When you visit, keep your eyes peeled for various sporting events or seasonal activities, which take place in the park nearly every weekend.
5. Oacoma City Park (Oacoma)
For a more old-fashioned playground like you and I remember, Oacoma is the place to be! Bonus? The playground is surrounded by lovely trees, making for both extra shade and a more comfortable playtime.
6. LaBarge Park (Pierre)
What better place to end our great South Dakota playground tour than with a beautiful park in our beautiful capital city? Featuring themed playground equipment and plenty of opportunities for active play, your family will never want to leave the unforgettable LaBarge Park.
