Those involved with Dinosaur Park project want public input


Major changes soon could be coming to an attraction in Rapid City, but before they do, those involved with the project want your input.    

On Thursday night, people attended an open house to provide input and comments for the Dinosaur Park Master Plan. This was an opportunity for people to see maps of the plan and also fill out a survey about changes they would like to see at Dinosaur Park. Those involved with the project say there are some immediate needs that need to be addressed, including making the park easier to access for people with disabilities.    

"We're looking at a lot of ADA improvements that would allow people to access the top of dinosaur hill," said Ted Schultz, of Cetec Engineering Services.

Dinosaur Park was built in 1936 and the only major development project to the site since then was in the late fifties. Landscape designers say changes are much needed to the park.    

"Everybody can relate to Dinosaur Park, has stories about Dinosaur Park and it's near and dear to everyone's heart. So we want to treat it right and improve it has best we can," said Alex DeSmidt, Landscape Designer for the Rapid City Parks and Recreation Department.

The survey will be on the Parks and Recreation website for about a week.
