Rapid City’s new ‘Greenway Days” celebrates community’s past, present, future | News World

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) – Memorial Park was buzzing with activity last weekend as a brand new community event took place.

To honor the past, appreciate the present, and look forward to the future, the Friends of Rapid City Parks hosted a new event this past weekend called Greenway Days.

This event is an outcome of the 50th 1972 Flood Anniversary held in 2022, where community members emphasized the importance of remembering the flood every year to bring the Rapid City community together.

The Friends of the Rapid City Parks’ mission is to keep the floodplain free of development, commemorate the lives lost, and celebrate the city’s greenway.

“Having a 10-mile greenway space in a city is very unique, so unique that it is one of the largest greenway spaces in the county, so we felt the importance of the icon of this space, but the history of how things came about is essential to keeping development from happening,” Greta Chapman, the board chair for Friends of Rapid City said.
