  • This somewhat disney and fairytale themed park is great for kids of all ages. Visit on a summer day or come and see the Christmas lights.  more »
  • You can't beat the price. It's a wonderful place to spend a couple hours goofing off with the kids. My kids loved playing around everything and taking pictures with all of the fairy tale statues.  more »

  • Free but donations are strongly encouraged. No outside water bottles are allowed because they want you to purchase their overpriced drinks. However, my young children really enjoyed this park. Would definitely visit again if we travelled to this area
  • Another Rapid City classic. TONS of inexpensive fun for kids of all ages. Donation requested. More fun if you've been to the one at Aberdeen too.
  • Visited Storybook Island for the awesome Christmas light display they have every Christmas season. Throughout the summer months, they offer a great place to take you children and grandchildren to see a display of storybook characters. Across from Storybook Island is a city park sheer you could enjoy a picnic lunch and the city swimming pools are also located here. Along with this there are bike paths.
  • Very good fun park for the kids. We always enjoy going here. All the different themed playgrounds are awesome. Brings out the kid in me.
  • If you have young children, this is a great place to take them. It is worth finding this gem. Admittance is free, although they do take donations. Check the weather before hand as this is basically all outdoors walking trail. Bring a good camera. Takes an hour or two to get through it. Lots to see.
