Review of Founders Park

Founders Park
Ranked #37 of 76 things to do in Rapid City
Attraction details
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This is a very good park near Rapid Creek. There is hiking and biking riding. But I liked the history information. It was near here that Rapid City got its start in 1876. About 12 men laid out the mile square city street grid. I found out the streets are based on magnetic north , not true north because they just used their magnetic compasses.

This is a nice area to just walk around and relax. The kids like to take of their shoes and walk around in the shallows of Rapid Creek.

Nice statuary in this place located in the center of town. It’s a place where kids can play and be amused.
