Construction is already underway on a new addition to memorial pond in rapid city.
Destination Rapid City first went to the Rapid City Council to propose the "south addition" after seeing people fishing and some worn paths on that side of the pond.
The addition will feature 3 fishing piers and the pond will be fully stocked by Game, Fish, and Parks.
Those involved with the project say that although construction of the south addition will be disruptive, in the end, it will be good for the community.
"It's going to be disruptive for a little while, but when it's all complete, said, and done, Wow! What an advancement for out community, what a great thing." Said President of Destination Rapid City, Dan Senftner.
Construction is scheduled to be completed next fall.
